History with Nigel (Nigel Fogelquist)

Do you enjoy learning things? What about things that have already happened? Would you take a class where you learn things about things that have already happened? If so, I have the class for you. In class, we will choose topics to research and discuss, no prior knowledge needed. Discussion is a great way to get a more in-depth understanding of history and I hope to be able to bring history to life through my class. So what are you waiting for? Put my class on your schedule right now!

 

World History, Continued (Sam)

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

Note: This class is a continuation from Fall Term. You can join for Winter Term whether or not you joined for Fall Term.

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 figures who have not been credited 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.

Required texts/materials: The instructor will procure the texts/materials.
