Global Studies

Welcome to your Global Studies Level 2 Class Website!

Our Global Studies class will study the historical past and current issues of five major world regions - Africa, the Middle East, East Asia, South Asia and Latin America. Within each region of the world we will study and learn about the area's geography, culture, history and current events.

The goal of this course is to help you view the surrounding global community and current global issues with an informed perspective.

You should check this class webpage often for updates, our class schedule, class handouts and homework.
