Welcome to World History! We are going to study an amazing scope of historical events that feature interesting people responsible for developments that heavily influence our civilization today. I hope that my passion for the past is transferred to you, and that you proudly proclaim your love of history as we wrap up the year. A snapshot of our year includes a brief visit with the Romans to experience the death of their empire. We will then study the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Protestant Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, the Age of Exploration and the Age of Enlightenment. Second semester will focus on the rise and spread of Islam, the sub-Saharan cultures of West Africa, China, Japan, and the Americas unit which feature the Mayan, Aztec and Incan civilizations. Can't wait to get started, eh? Let's go!
