World History

This course will cover World History from the 1300 A.D. to the current day; touching on major events, cause and effect, and cultural trends. Our journey through history will also become a vehicle for which we will explore historical theory i.e.: how historians interpret facts, as well as and most importantly developing our reading and writing skills. As your teacher, I am confident that this course will give you a new found appreciation for the past, and it is my hope that the experience will be enjoyable for all students.
