Ways of the World: A Global History with Sources is the first docutext for AP* World History. A docutext combines a core narrative with written and visual primary source collections, providing the convenience of a text and reader in one volume — all at an extremely affordable price. Ways of the World is thoroughly global in its thematic and comparative approach. The narrative highlights major developments and key concepts, giving students and teachers the room to explore the primary sources fully. The emphasis on historical thinking skills that runs throughout every chapter of the book is ideally suited to the course revisions introduced by the College Board. A thoughtful prologue and part-opening essays emphasize the book’s “big picture” approach, and each chapter narrative ends with “Reflections,” a consideration of history and the human enterprise it explores. Ways of the World is the text AP World History teachers have been waiting for.
