Re: Changes to the AP World History Course & Exam (X-Post from H-World)

Thank you for this thoughtful reply. I just wish colleges (and parents) would recognize that the students who arrive at college with AP credit are often not ready to go directly into upper-level courses. If only colleges would stop accepting AP credit as an equivalent to college-level coursework, at least in history.

I wonder if you are finding that high school teachers are less eager to teach AP than before. I see this trend in the more innovative districts. The traditional ones tend to like content-heavy multiple choice exams for both their AP classes and their non-AP ones.
