Welcome to World History!
This is a tenth-grade course designed to help students of all abilities examine the achievements, failures, and discoveries in modern history that have shaped the world we live in today. In this course, we will study the major events of our world’s past, including the Enlightenment, the French & Russian Revolutions, the growth of democracy, the impact of imperialism, the causes and consequences of WWI and WWII, and issues facing the world today. Students will learn how the decisions made during these eras, and the consequences of these decisions, still affect our daily lives.
Please review the Humanities II Syllabus (attachment on the Unit 1 page) for any important questions about classroom expectations, grading systems or curriculum.
