TUESDAY 11:00 am - 12:00 pm ET
A whirlwind trip through World History provides students with a background of the major time periods and familiarity with historical characters. We'll spend eight weeks each in the following time periods: Ancient Times, Middle Ages, Renaissance and Reformation, and Exploration to Modern Era. Exploration and the Modern era will be studied from a global perspective as it is expected that students will study those periods more extensively from an American History perspective. Students explore topics via living books, keep a timeline along with a student notebook and write based on historical topics.
Weekly practice reinforces the concepts taught in class and the instructor is available during live office hours and by email to assist students. Assignments are graded and students receive a mid-term report as well as a year-end course completion report.
