Hi Welcome to my World History class parents and students!
Course Overview: Within this course, students will not only learn about historical events, places, and people; they will also learn how “history” has and continues to influence our world today. This course will look at the past through the lens of today’s world and explore the impact of social, political, cultural, economic, and religious changes. This course will be taught and learned in a variety of different ways, including videos, student presentations, DBQ essays (Document Based Questions), reading, journaling/reflecting, current events, discussions, research, note taking, and lectures. Students will be encouraged and challenged to work with their classmates to discover “big picture” themes of world history that are still relevant today. The Major units to be covered within the class:
