AP World History: The Tao of Pooh Essay Assignment

Posted on December 22, 2016


If you’d like to get a jump on some AP World History work, here is the essay prompt for the Tao of Pooh. It is due on January 17th. The book is a quick read (an hour and a half, tops); it’s also adorable.

How do we apply Taoism today? Is it possible? If so, how? If not, then why not? In your final paper, you must tackle these questions using evidence from the book as well as your own experiences. You must firmly support your views in an effective manner and contain analysis of the following major themes of Taoism in The Tao of Pooh:

  • The Uncarved Block
  • Inner Nature vs. Cleverness
  • Wu Wei
  • Bisy Backson
  • The Great Nothing
