Welcome to World History!
World History is a full one-year course, state-mandated for graduation. The focus of this course is the study of the historical development of people, places, and patterns of life, from the Renaissance (1300 AD), to the present day. The student will be exposed to a multicultural development of art, religion, science, literature, philosophy, politics, and the impact of the individual on various societies of the world. Students will utilize different methods that historians use to interpret the past, including points of view and historical context to build a foundation for understanding human history across different cultures and civilizations in both Western and non-Western societies.
