Use the resources below to prepare for class. Students are expected to bring notes on the materials to class in order to fuel class discussion and course activities. Coming to class unprepared will severely limit a student's understanding of the topics.
World War II is a multifaceted topic. Of course, with the AP exam, very rarely do they discuss any battles. Knowing some of you are interested in how the war played out, I've provided links for such information. However, due to the nature of the AP exam, I would limit my time reviewing such material, even for our class test.
