WORLD HISTORY HONORS OVERVIEW
From the first civilizations through today’s society, students will embark on a more rigorous yearlong study of our world’s history. Students investigate classical civilizations in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, and Asia while exploring the economic, political, and social revolutions that have transformed human history. Units progress through the course by touching on world wars, imperialism, and cultural aspects of each region’s society. From creating an explorer’s notebook to mapping out how Europe changed after World War II, students are better equipped to compare what happened in yesterday’s world with what is going on in our modern era. Throughout this Honors course, students continuously analyze primary and secondary sources relating to the region and era of study. Incorporating activities from other disciplines gives students the opportunity to connect history to other subjects. Students read excerpts from novels such as Charles Dickens’ Hard Times and excerpts from memoirs like that of Ji-li Jiang’s, titled Red Scarf Girl. Projects such as writing a summary of a current event based on an ancient religion encourage students to perform throughout the course at a higher level.
