This is part one of a three part series covering modern World History. If all three parts are taken it will cover 1500 through the 1990s. There are in class and/or homework assignments each week, plus students will be encouraged to study the topics outside of class either through reading a history text of their choosing or watching Crash Course videos. If a student completes all in class assignments, homework, and studying outside the classroom, this three part class could be used a credit on...
When students complete this class, they should be able to look at any historic document and "source" it. They will be able to determine who the author is, what the author's authority is, when the source was written and if that date impacts the source's reliability. They will also know how to take two accounts of the same story and pull corroborating facts out. They will know how to determine which sources are reliable and which are not. They will know what primary and secondary sources are. They will learn key events and concepts in modern World History including the impact of the Columbian Exchange, the Protestant Reformation, Enlightenment, the French Revolution, and the Haitian Revolution.
I have been studying history almost my entire life and earned both an undergraduate and graduate degree in history, though my Masters is in American Studies. I have been teaching both World and US History in person to homeschoolers for several years and have been teaching history on Outschool for almost as long.
Students will be given homework some weeks. All homework will be given in pdf form so that students can print the worksheets or they can upload the pdf to kamiapp.com and type directly onto the pdf. Students are strongly encouraged to either watch Crash Course (or similar) videos or read a World History book of their choosing that covers that topics we are discussing in class. All reading and/or video watching will be done as homework.
Students will be given pdfs each week that contain the in-class work and homework. These pdfs need to be printed or if the student prefers to type answers, pdfs can be uploaded to the Kami App website and students can type directly onto the pdfs. Students are strongly encouraged to either watch Crash Course (or similar) videos or read a World History book of their choosing that covers that topics we are discussing in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Student progress will be assessed through their in-class work and homework.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As with any World History course, we will be covering topics like death, war, racism, slavery, sex, violence, and sexism. I will not shy away from these topics, but will help the students understand that though racism, slavery, sexism, etc. are part of the fabric of World History, they are not acceptable by our standards today.
