Modern World History 

NOTE: This course may be hazardous to your world view!

PHILOSOPHY
    World History is much more than the memorization or the regurgitation of others' ideas. It is the discovery of what makes each of us different and yet alike. It is the celebration of what and who came before us and the quest to find the linkage with the future. Our rich histories are the cornerstone of our identities, as an individual and as a culture. History is the study of humans, and as such it is NOT an exact science with absolute answers but rather an endless search for answers. Oh yeah, and history is cool! 

COURSE DESCRIPTION
    In this MODERN WORLD HISTORY course we will examine political, cultural, social, diplomatic and military events during the modern era. We will examine the growth of democratic traditions, the role that industrialization plays in the expansion of world powers and their conflicts. We will look at the issues facing the world today and how those issues are linked to history.
    This class will further develop your reading, writing, THINKING and organizational skills. You are expected to actively and responsibly engage in class discussions, collaborative/group activities, individual assignments and simulation projects.

EXPECTATIONS
1. Show respect towards everyone and everything!
2. Be on-time, prepared, work hard and think!
3. Have a lot of fun!

    That's our goal in this class. You will no longer be asked only what something is, or when something happened. Instead, you'll be asked to analyze various viewpoints of the same event and draw your own conclusions about why something happened, and its consequence then in history and now. The days of looking up one word/sentence answers in a textbook are over.
    Please remember that you are in control of your success in this class. Take responsibility for your work and be accountable for your actions.
