2. My year long project has finally been posted and will hopefully be of use to some of you! I recently revised Georgia Virtual School’s AP European History course. Part of our initative at GAVS is to make our newly revised courses free for all who would like to use them. As such, the European Course has been created as an open education resource and is available at:

There are 18 content modules ranging from the Middle Ages to 2000. There is also an extensive AP Exam prep module that has been broken into three parts (MC, DBQ, and FRQ) that emphasizes thesis statements and pov. It includes self assessments for the students to determine what counts and what doesn’t –  and gives comprehensive feedback regardless of which answer they choose. There are also 2 minor review units.
