Course Description:
This is the first of two courses that comprise Honors World History. This rigorous course provides students with a comprehensive examination of world history from ancient times through the Napoleonic Wars of the early 19th century. Glencoe's -World History: Modern Times -provides the basis for instruction. Students begin by exploring prehistory, focusing on the Stone and Bronze Ages. Students move on to learn about the early civilizations of Asia, the Middle East, and the Mediterranean basin, paying special attention to the civilizations of ancient Egypt, Greece, and Rome. The Middle Ages, Renaissance, and Reformation periods round out the course, throughout which students examine how historians work with ancient documents and both primary and secondary sources of information.
