Dear Mr. Packer,


I’m writing to add my voice to the many AP World History teachers opposed to the proposed change in the AP World History scope.  I’ve taught the subject since 2005, have been a Reader for the exam since 2008, and I’m sure my school will not be adding Pre AP World History and Geography for our 9th grade students (AP Human Geography is offered). While I personally will continue to teach my AP World History students history before 1450 CE, my concern is for what happens 10-15 years down the road if none of this important earlier material is on the AP test. I hope that Time Period 3, at least, will continue to be included in the AP World History exam.
