Global Studies 10

Welcome to the second year of world history.  We have another year of traveling through world history. At the end of the year there you will be in the first class to take the revised Regents in Global History and Geography - on 10th grade material only.  The format of the Regents will not change - 50 multiple choice questions, a thematic essay and a document based question essay.  Relax, you've been working on all of these things already. As time permits, we will spend considerable time working to review for the regents in June as well.

The curriculum for the year will begin with a brief review of what the world was like in 1750 and then head into information about the Scientific Revolution, Enlightenment and revolutions.  We will end the year discussing modern issues and the problems facing the world.
