My name is Scott Hudson, I teach 3 World History and 3 Government Classes at Wooster, hence the name of the site.

The main purpose of Word history class is to help the students understand and navigate the independence that is growing in the modern world. This one-year class will provide students with a comprehensive survey of world history that will help in understanding the events of today. Knowledge of one’s past and a sense of one’s place is fundamental to the development of responsible citizenship. The lens of history allows students to investigate events, issues, and personalities from multiple perspectives by interpreting and evaluating a variety of sources. In addition, today’s global society requires students to understand not only the significance of the past, but how history connects to their community, state, nation, and world
