Global History and Geography II
Welcome to Regents Global History and Geography II! This year, we will continue your studies of Global History. We will be studying the following topics:
- The World in 1750
- Enlightenment, Revolution, and Nationalism
- The Industrial Revolution
- Unresolved Global Conflict (1914 - 1991)
- Decolonization and Nationalism
- Tensions Between Cultural Traditions and Modernization
- Globalization and the Chaning Environment
- Human Rights Violations
Through studying Global History, it is my hope that you gain an appreciation for history and the way in which it has impacted the development of civilization and our lives. This course will also help students to better understand their relationship to the world around us, their duties as global citizens, and their role in society. We will accomplish these goals through the use of whole group discussions, group work, note-taking, essays, projects, and meaningful homework assignments. We will also be preparing for the Global History and Geography Regents Exam, which will be given in June. Review assignments and periodic review sessions will be used throughout the course of the year to prepare for this exam.
