View Events/Assignments for
This course is the study of World regions – governments, economies, geography and history from 1500 to present. The focus of this course will continue to build upon students’ prior contextual knowledge of the basic disciplines in social studies so they will develop deeper levels of understanding around the many ways the world is connected. Students will make comparisons across different countries and their different governments, economies, cultures and histories during this time period, while considering multiple perspectives and viewpoints. Furthermore, students will continue to refine their critical thinking skills around the many similarities and differences of the world’s regions. Throughout this course, students should continue to be afforded ample opportunities to engage in all Practices of the Social Studies Inquiry Cycle.
