Global History I/Honors (105B)
This full-year course will challenge students to interpret a variety of cultures across the globe from roughly 300 CE - 1850 CE. Students will work to enhance reading, writing, test taking, organization, and study skills. In addition, students will develop the skills of historical research and analytical writing using primary and secondary sources. In addition to grade-level readings, students will routinely examine supplemental readings above grade level. Instructional materials will incorporate film, technology, the arts, and literature. The course exposes students to multiple cultures from across the globe, including the Americas, Africa, Asia, and Europe. Students will examine the histories and cultures through multiple perspectives, including, but not limited to, race, class, and gender. Students should expect regular out of class assignments. In general, Global History I/Honors students will be expected to work at a greater level of independence and to master deeper content and analysis than in Global History I.
