Course Description: 

This Modern World History course will be a thematic exploration of major world developments and cultures from the Renaissance to today.  The course will begin with the Renaissance and continue through the political, social and economic issues facing us in the present global community.

A goal of this course will be the use of various problem-solving and critical-thinking strategies to solve historical problems.  In this design, history class is not the passive presentation of events. Students will be required to assume the active role as a participant in history engaged individually and cooperatively in active learning.  In order to more fully understand the modern world, emphasis will be placed on multicultural learning, current events, and the world's relevance to our lives in the tri-town area.  Ultimately, this course will help lay the foundation for us to become active, responsible participants in a diverse and interdependent world.

All of our assignments, PowerPoints and other class information is found on Google Classroom.  Please follow the link and use the class code to join, if you have not done so already.
