Foundations of World History
Deposit Due at Time of Registration:
During this year-long course, students will study the history of the world from Creation to the present. Each week students will read assigned passages in the history encyclopedia and complete weekly assignments based on those readings. Students will have the opportunity to share their thoughts through class discussions, projects, and short writing assignments. The big project that students will complete is a timeline of the important events that we read about and discuss in class. This timeline will guide students to see the chronological flow of history, place events in historical context, and connect these events to broader historical themes.
