Modern World History (B) Classroom


1 Semester Class

In this class, students examine major turning points in the shaping of the modern world, from the late eighteenth century to the present. The year begins with a focus on study skills, including methodology used at the high school level. It continues with a connecting phase to the rise of democratic ideals and reviews past learning (ancient civilization, Middle Ages, etc.) The major thrust of the course, however, is world history, culture and geography from 1789 to the present (with emphasis on the 20th century). Close attention will be paid to the expansion of the west and the growing interdependence of people and cultures throughout the world.
