World History "A"
11:00 AM - 12:30 PM
Far Side 2
$19.50/week for 32 weeks and a one-time $80 material fee
A unique look at World History from 1789-2010. We’ll work our way from the French Revolution to (almost) today using music, primary sources, photography, and art of the era. This approach helps history come alive in a way that a typical textbook struggles.
We work on making connections between events and the how the journey through history helped lead us to the current day.
