About this event

A three week, four-hour daily class open to any incoming sophomores. For initial graduation credit, students must enroll in both Fall and Spring semesters. Juniors or Seniors who need to repeat Fall semester may sign up for only Fall semester. Fall semester tuition is required. The course moves quickly and demands a great deal of reading and preparation outside of class. Students in World History study major turning points that shaped the modern world, from the late eighteenth century through the present, including the cause and course of the two world wars. They trace the rise of democratic ideas and develop an understanding of the historical roots of current world issues, especially as they pertain to international relations. They extrapolate from the American experience that democratic ideals are often achieved at a high price, remain vulnerable, and are not practiced everywhere in the world. Students develop an understanding of current world issues and relate them to their historical, geographic, political, economic, and cultural contexts. Students consider multiple accounts of events in order to understand international relations from a variety of perspectives. Students are given a variety of Document Based Questions activities requiring document analysis, critical thinking and writing to allow for a deeper understanding of the content while providing skills in line with Common Core. Earns five of ten required credits for the World History graduation requirement. UC Approved.
