US History provides a balanced approach to US history, connecting the people,
events, and ideas that have shaped the United States from all angles. Students will
be engaged by investigating both top down influences (politics, economics,
diplomacy) and bottom up (eyewitness accounts, lived experience).
World History covers an overview of different cultures, states, and societies that have impacted the current world such as Ancient Mesopotamia,
Ancient Israel, Dynastic Egypt, India’s Classical Age, the Dynasties of China, Archaic
Greece, the Roman Empire, Islam, Medieval Africa, the Americas, and the Khanates
of Central Asia). The course encourages students to engage in historical thinking.
