I have received training for IGSCE courses while teaching them in public schools in the United States.  I have taught this breadth subject matter several times in my high school world history courses, always wishing we had more time to explore such a fascinating topic in history.  I am looking forward to the opportunity to spend 10 weeks on the subject, rather than the 10 minutes that this subject might receive in a rushed world history class.  IGSCE and highly motivated high school students both will do well in the class.  (Next class- Russia and the Soviet Union, 1905-24. A2 Paper 2).
