Comparisons, Connections, & Change—contexts for the particularsWays of the World is the textbook preferred by AP World History teachers and students across North America. Like the AP course it supports, Ways of the World focuses on significant historical trends, themes, and developments in world history. Author Robert W. Strayer provides a thoughtful and insightful synthesis that helps students see the big picture. Each chapter then culminates with collections of primary sources (written and visual) organized around a particular theme, issue, or question, thus allowing students to consider the evidence the way historians do. This second edition includes materials and supplements written specifically for the AP course, including an AP Skills Primer and AP Chapter Wrap-Ups, an Annotated Teacher’s Edition, and more.
"Strayer continuously makes comparisons between and among civilizations and points out the changes and continuities over time so essential in the AP World history course. He models the historical thinking skills that students are learning…" —Barbara Brun-Ozuna, R.L. Paschal High School, TX
