In World History this year we will be researching the Ancient World through the Modern Age by examining primary sources such as documents, photographs, paintings, and other artifacts. We will also have "Socratic Seminars" where students will debate and discuss various historic topics. In addition, students will perform "Act-It-Outs"-role playing by viewing a historic image.
Students will also study key geographical concepts such as the Five Themes of Geography: Location, Region, Place, Human-Environmental Interaction, and Movement. The textbook our students' will be using as a reference is "World History: Human Legacy," published by Holt.
