Welcome to Modern World History! 
 
 This course examines world events from 1600 to the present. It explores the impact of the democratic and industrial revolutions, the forces that led to world domination by European powers, the wars that changed empires, the ideas that led to independence movements and the effects of global interdependence. The concepts of historical thinking introduced in earlier grades continue to build with students locating and analyzing primary and secondary sources from multiple perspectives to draw conclusions.
 
Unit 1 Test is Wednesday September 19, 2017! Study Guide is due that day!

Scenes from last year's trench warfare "battle." Students used classroom furniture to build trenches and reenacted some trench warfare battles. During this time sound effects were played to make the room really sound like a World War I battle zone. Students ended the activity by reading diaries from World War I soldiers explaining what the experience was really like.
