This course examines world events from 1600 to the present. It explores the impact of the democratic and industrial revolutions, the forces that led to world domination by European powers, the wars that changed empires, the ideas that led to independence movements, and the effects of global interdependence. The concepts of historical thinking introduced in earlier grades continue to build with students locating and analyzing primary and secondary sources from multiple perspectives to draw conclusions. As we study historic eras, we will learn how to think like historians as we attempt to link the past to the present. We will also consider therms of government. Finally, we will continue to develop our research skills as well as 21st Century Skills needed to be successful in our modern world.
