Ask an Expert, Part 3 - Are There Any Strategies for the Contextualization Point?
Tony’s back for Part 3 of our “Ask an Expert” series to discuss the contextualization point, why it can be problematic for students (about 1 in 5 AP World students earned the point on the 2019 exam), and how/when to earn the point in your DBQ response on the 2020 exam.
Tony literally wrote the book (several of them, actually - shown below) on how to write a DBQ response. Wanna know more about what makes him an expert? Check out his full bio here.
If you have any AP history questions of your own that you'd like to see Tony answer, feel free to send them to us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
