Mr. Kramer's Webpage

Welcome to Modern World History class!

The course focuses upon the development of world civilization from before the Age of Absolutism through the Age of Enlightenment and the Age of Revolution, concluding with twentieth-century world history and the study of the two world wars. The course culminates with a discussion of problems surrounding the modern world.  Throughout the course, current events will provide a link between the past and the present.

The main purpose of this website is to allow students an opportunity to get any work they may have missed from class. I have designed the site for both students and parents so that all stake-holders will have a clear understanding of my class. Please use this website as needed to get make-up work, keep track of assignments, and be on top of current information.

The program "Quizlet" allows me to create notecards for each unit and post them online. You can print them out to use as a hardcopy or study them online.
They can also be used on smartphones with the "Quizlet App" To get all of the note cards on your phone, search for my username "mrkramerjmb" it will display all of the sets I have created.
Good Luck.
