World History
World History at the ninth-grade level is a survey course that gives students the opportunity to explore recurring themes of human experience common to civilizations around the globe from ancient to contemporary times.  A historical approach will be at the center of the course.  The application of the themes of geography and an analysis of the cultural traits of civilizations will help students understand how people shape their world and how their world shapes them.  As students examine the historical roots of significant events, ideas, movements, and phenomena, they encounter the contributions and patterns of living in civilizations from around the world.  Students broaden their historical perspectives as they explore ways society have dealt with continuity and change, exemplified by issues such as war and peace, internal stability and strife, and the development of institutions.  To become informed citizens, students require knowledge of the civilizations that have shaped the development of the United States.  World History provides the foundation that enables students to acquire this knowledge which will be used in the study of Civics and Economics and American History.
