This course examines contemporary world events and their political, economic, social, historic, and geographic roots. It explores the dynamics of global interactions among nations and regions and how they create issues that affect all of humanity. These dynamics include competing beliefs and goals, methods of engagement, and conflict and cooperation. 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 develop and defend conclusions. As we study contemporary world events, we will continue to develop the 21st Century Skills needed to be productive citizens in our modern world and focus on how students can impact global issues through service learning.
