Annotated Chapter 17

On Tuesday, you will have your reading quiz over Chapter 17 for Ways of the World.  This is a complex chapter.  When I get ready to write a quiz, I read the chapter thoroughly and annotate the important passages that relate to AP themes and the important historical details that you need to know.

This is something that you should do as you take notes.

To help you process the information in Chapter 17, I have provided for you the entire chapter with my annotations.  Read through this digital chapter as you prepared for the quiz on Tuesday. Hopefully, this will help you go through the other chapters as well.
