***This is a very important part of your AP exam prep, as we do not have time to go over all the non-western chapters in class.
YOUR CHOICES: Must be different from your previous research essay!
Asia: China and Korea
Buddhist Art of Asia and SE Asia
Early and Later Africa
Ancient Northern America
WHAT YOU CAN'T CHOOSE:
As for as the exam goes, “Beyond the European tradition” technically also includes:
Islamic Art of the Near East
BUT there is an emphasis on using examples from non-Western cultures other than Egypt and the Ancient Near East:
The Development Committee is concerned about the overuse of Egyptian and Ancient Near East examples for the essay question that asks students to discuss art beyond the European tradition. The committee added the following statement to the Course Description for 2010: "One of the 30-minute essay questions requires students to incorporate at least one example of art beyond the European tradition into their essays. Ancient Egypt and the Ancient Near East are fully covered in the multiple-choice questions in Part I and the short-answer essays in Part II of the exam. The intent of this essay question is to draw from areas such as Africa (beyond ancient Egypt), the Americas, Asia, Islamic cultures, and Oceania."
So, this means, ONLY USE EGYPT OR MESOPOTAMIA IF YOU LITERALLY CAN'T THINK OF ANYTHING ELSE!!!
You can download all the STUDY GUIDES HERE. They are in one large document so just cut and paste your section into a new document. Again, DO NOT try and find the answers other than on your own in your text book or other text sources. They should be answered in your own words. DO NOT PLAGIARIZE. YOU WILL RECEIVE A ZERO ON THE ENTIRE ASSIGNMENT IF YOU DO.
