Eric is the Lead AP World History teacher here at Fiveable. He has taught history with high school students since 1990, first in California and now in Minnesota. Although Eric has taught many US and AP European History classes during his career, his teaching schedule has been all World History, both on level and Advanced Placement, for the past few years. In these classes he is always looking to decolonize the curriculum and to encourage students to think historically. Eric also blogs at www.ebeckman.org .

This week’s sessions discuss skills and content across two time periods: Early Modern (1450-1750) and Modern (1750-1900). Powerful empires expanded overseas and overland in the Early Modern period. Many empires built monumental structures, such as the Blue Mosque in the Ottoman Empire, pictured above. Later, industrialization reshaped the balance of power in the World. Sessions include interaction with hosts and practice with original questions written by Fiveable’s AP World team.
