World History (Sam)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

World History is a subject that explores the key events and global historical developments since the 1500s that have shaped the world we live in today. The scope of Modern World History provides the latitude to range widely across all aspects of human experience: economics, science, religion, philosophy, politics & law, military conflict, literature & the arts. The class will illuminate connections between our lives and those of our ancestors around the world. We will also analyze people groups and important people that have not been mentioned in history.

We will uncover patterns of behavior, identify historical trends and themes, explore historical movements and concepts, and test theories. Students will refine their ability to read for comprehension and critical analysis; summarize, categorize, compare, and evaluate information; write clearly and convincingly; express facts and opinions orally, and use technology appropriately to present information.
