How much homework is in World History?

AP® World History is a rigorous, college-level course. The College Board recommends this course and corresponding AP® exam for advanced 10th grade students and up.

We estimate that the course workload will take 10+ hours per week.

During a typical week in this course, students will complete the following coursework:

  • 60–90 minutes of live class instruction
  • Lecture video (~ 30 minutes per week)
  • 1 chapter textbook reading
  • Primary source reading
  • Discussion forum post and reply

Throughout the year, students will also complete the following tasks:

  • Handwritten AP essay practice every 5-6 weeks
  • Unit exam every 4-5 weeks
