| |Welcome to my World History course page. World History is a very important course as it is required for graduation, is UC A-G approved, is NCAA clearinghouse approved, and is assessed by a California STAR test in the spring.
During the first semester, World History begins by examining the philosophical and historical underpinnings of the concepts of individual human rights, political freedom, and economic systems that promote growth and fairness. Following this difficult introductory unit, students analyze the evolution of the British political system, the French revolution, the agricultural and industrial revolution, and European and American imperialism. Semester one ends around 1914, just before the advent of the First World War.
Semester two begins with analysis of the causes, course, and effects of WWI. We continue by studying the crucial 20 years between the wars and how dictatorial leaders and totalitarian regimes led the world into another global conflict. Following World War II, we study the Cold War, colonial independence movements, globalization, and the many unique problems facing all of us in the current era.
