In this class we study history from the global perspective. This means trying to understand how the pasts of all humans were both connected and disjointed — from the first human communities through the early 1500s.
As we travel through these time periods we will ask several key questions that will help us understand human history, such as: How did humans for societies? How did humans make sense of their world? What role have science and technology played in human history? How did societies interact with each other? What have men and women’s roles been in these societies? Why?
In answering these questions together, we will develop core skills, including (but not limited to) 1) analyzing primary sources, 2) creating and articulating persuasive historical arguments (both orally and in well organized expository essays), 3) understanding how and why change over time occurs.
