Global Studies is a new course for MVHS. The new course will focus on skills. Lots of traditional reading, writing, and note-taking, but taking our time to be very specific and deliberate in our approach. The course will also include mapping activities, current events, and Unit 1 The Rise of Democratic Ideas from tenth grade World History. The unit focuses on the development of democracy over time and we will look at examples from Ancient Greece, Ancient Rome, Judeo-Christian traditions, and the Reformation.
