This course focuses on developing student’ understanding of world history from approximately 8000 B.C.E. to the present.  Students investigate the content of world history for significant events, individuals, developments and processes in six historical periods, and develop historical thinking skills and methods. 

This course is a college-level class, not college prep. As such, you will be exposed to the scope of material and level of academics one would expect in a world history  survey course in college—if not more so. To that end, this course is reading and writing intensive and emphasizes critical thinking through the use of primary and secondary source interpretation, open class discussion and debate, and research. You can expect to spend at minimum five hours a week of out-of-class time on this course.
