There are 18 enduring and recurring concepts in history. Each week we will dive deeper into a single concept. Knowledge of these concepts provides an excellent foundation and enrichment for any high school history class, but especially World History, Honors World History and AP World History and AP European History.

Students will deepen their understanding of the eighteen concepts that are essential to the study of history through discussion, visuals, readings, and reflection.
I have been teaching World History for over twenty of my thirty years of teaching, including AP classes. I have had many classroom discussions about difficult topics that may arise as part of studying the patterns of World History.
Weekly flex class assignments should take students approximately an hour per week.
I highly recommend that a student who takes this class get a folder to keep handouts and notes in. There will be times that previous weeks' topics are referenced, so organization will contribute to success.
Student will receive weekly feedback based on work that is submitted in the form of written informal assessment. If the instructor feels as though a student doesn't understand a concept, the teacher will make efforts to provide remediation.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There may be sensitive topics, especially when discussing genocide, human rights, and conflict. There will be notice given in advance and if requested, images or specific topics will be sent to parents in advance. As a teacher with a many years of experience teaching this subject, you can be assured that I will handle all discussions and questions with tact and sensitivity.
There will be a variety of resources utilized, two frequently used sources are The History Channel and The Stanford Education History Group.
