"There is nothing new in the world except the history you do not know." ~Harry S. Truman
I am SO excited about guiding my students on a wonderful adventure exploring an in-depth study of World History! Students will be encouraged to think, question, and express their opinions freely in a respectful manner. My goal is not for my students to memorize a bunch of data, but to really gain knowledge through structured interactive activities about historical events that have shaped the world as we know it today.
This World History course consists of the following content area strands: World History, Geography and Humanities. This course is a continued in-depth study of the history of civilizations and societies from the middle school course, and includes the history of civilizations and societies of North and South America. Students will be exposed to historical periods leading to the beginning of the 21st Century. So that students can clearly see the relationship between cause and effect in historical events, students should have the opportunity to review those fundamental ideas and events from ancient and classical civilizations.
