The Course: Global History and Geography I (Honors)
- This Course is the first of a two-year study in world history. We begin with the beginnings of civilizations and end in the 1750s. We will cover such topics as Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, Rome, the Mayans and Incas, belief systems, early China, Japan, and Africa, and Latin America. We will also study the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Age of Exploration, The Protestant Reformation/Catholic Counter-Reformation, the Ottomans and beginnings of European absolute monarchs. The expectation is that students will move onto AP Global History in 10th grade.
- We will also examine the essential questions of the course:
1. What does it mean to be civilized?
2. How do humans adapt to their environment?
3. How do we really know what happened?
4. How are we connected to the past?
5. How have cultures and countries changed over time and how have they stayed the same?
6. How can we make a difference in our world?FOR COURSE REQUIREMENTS AND GRADING POLICY SEE "SYLLABUS AND CLASS RULES" TAB
