Lesson Plans for AP European History

Note: These materials were developed prior to the course changes in 2015-16. While these materials are still relevant to teaching the redesigned AP® European History course, teachers should be aware of the differences.

The following AP European History lesson plans are the result of a collaboration between the College Board and the History Teaching Institute, which is affiliated with the Goldberg Program for Excellence in Teaching in the Department of History at Ohio State University. Each plan focuses on how to address a European history topic effectively through take-home and in-class activities, and provides a thorough guide to relevant Web sites, background readings, and primary sources. The lesson plans have been designed to meet the needs of the AP European History course, particularly in their coverage of difficult-to-teach topics and current historical scholarship.
