World History Honors
World History Honors is a college-preparatory survey course designed to introduce students to a thematic approach to learning about human history. Attention will be given to preparing students to think and write analytically about world historical issues, trends, and events. Course work will include examination of primary and secondary sources and the development of historical research and writing skills. Special emphasis will be placed on learning the historian’s key skills of interpreting and analyzing evidence; determining cause and effect; assessing change and continuity over time; and comparative analysis, both across societies and across time periods.
