AP/CITS European History

For AP European History, I suggest using an AP text, but I understand with Distance Learning, this is not always possible.  My Quick Reads, or one page readings are supplemental texts to items that may not be covered in a textbook or to be used if one does not have a textbook.  I also do various projects and essays with my students throughout the semester and do not have all of them listed here.
