World History and Geography

 

History and Geography have been intertwined since the dawn of time. While providing a solid understanding of World History, this course will explore geographic influences on history, with attention given to political boundaries that developed with the evolution of nations from the dawn of time to the present and the subsequent human geographic issues that dominate the global community. Students will look at the history of culture, politics, diplomacy, society, education, economics, and more. Students will be better able to understand and evaluate the world and time in which they live in by having a fundamental understanding of the past.

Particular emphasis is placed on students’ understanding and applying geographic concepts and skills to their daily lives. Class activity will include student discussion, research projects, guest speakers, quizzes, a mid-term and a final exam.  There will be field trips to local areas of cultural interest, and other nearby historical sites.
