World History Acceleration


Summer 2023

Monday, June 12 – Friday, August 4, 2023




Upper or Honors

In World History, students will explore the development of human societies from the earliest times to today. Working from a global and comparative perspective, students will investigate major topics such as human-environment interactions; the agricultural and industrial revolutions; the power of religion, science and ideology; the nature of state, society and community; war, empire and resistance; and the acceleration of trade, exploration and globalization. Students will be encouraged to develop — and persuasively advocate for — their own interpretations based on careful and critical analysis of historical sources. World History is designed to complement subjects and themes encountered in World Literature.
