Lecture

  • Lecture topics for the 2019 - 2020 academic year are posted below. While lecture will cover many topics over the course of the year, it is essential that you read the sections of the textbook as listed below with each lecture.

    To succeed in AP Euro, a combination of Lecture Notes, Textbook and Review Book is recommended.

    Listed below are the readings for the McKay Textbook that go along with each lecture.

    Remember, it is required that you take the notes during the lecture days.
