    Synopsis of Curriculum

    This course will engage students in the history of our world from 3000B.C. to 1914 A.D.  The main trend of the course will be how these events helped shape future events and the world’s current state.  There are four main scopes that students will use to analyze these events: through culture, economics, politics and religion.  During the year, students will learn to take reliable notes, participate in group discussions and think and write independently.  In addition, we will critically analyze various texts and events in order to discern the motives and repercussions of specific actions.
