World History Studies is the only course offering students an overview of the entire history of humankind.  The major emphasis is on the study of significant people, events, and issues from the earliest time to the present.  Traditional historical points of reference in world history are identified as students analyze important events and issues in western civilization as well as in civiliziations in other parts of the world.  Students evaluate the causes and effects of political and economic imperialism and of major political revolutions since the 17th century.  Students examine the impact of geographic factors on major historic events and identify the historic origins fo contemporary economic systems.  Students analyze the process by which democratic-republican governments evolved as well as the ideas from historic documents that influenced that process.  Students trace the historical development of important legal and political concepts.  Students examine the history and impact of major religious and philosophical traditions.  Students analyze the connections between major developments in science and technology and the growth of industrial economies, and they use the process of historical inquiry to research, interpret, and use multiple sources of evidence.
