The World History course is an academic, yearlong course with a focus on the development of human interaction and the global processes that have shaped history from the Renaissance to the present. In addition to the textbook, students will be engaged through a variety of sources including primary source documents, maps, simulations, plays, debates, videos, lectures, and computer-technology assignments. Remember, it is expected that students come prepared at all times!
Furthermore, an important part of learning history is discussing the various aspects of any given topic. Discussions are an open forum for students to express their views in an environment of tolerance, understanding, and honesty. It is expected that all students come to class with open minds, listen to others, and respect differing opinions.
