Students will learn about the events that led to humans transitioning from hunters and gatherers to living in permanent villages and farming. They will weigh the pros and cons of this transition and the changes that it brought. Students will also learn about how geography affects the way that people live and how societies function. Finally, students will understand the circumstances that allowed empires to rise and also what caused them to fall.
I have taught World History in the public school system for the past 5 years. Teaching the rise of civilizations is one of my favorite topics because students are able to see where so many of our practices originated and how our settled life compared to the life of nomadic hunters and gatherers.
No additional homework is assigned. Students will be completing graphic organizers during class but may want to add to them after class as well.
Graphic organizers will be linked in the classroom. Students have the option to print them or create their own.
Student progress will be assessed through the graphic organizer and through discussions.
2 hours 40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
