World History Honors

World History Honors reflects a commitment to what history teachers, professors, and researchers have agreed is the main goal of a pre-Advanced Placement world history survey course: learning to analyze and interpret historical facts and evidence to achieve understanding of major developments in world history.

Specific concepts, skills, and understandings are taught and practiced, which are necessary to succeed in a future college-level Social Science course. Students practice the reasoning skills used by historians by studying primary and secondary source evidence, analyzing a wide array of historical facts and perspectives, and expressing historical arguments in writing.

Readings, content, and the overall curriculum has been selected to enable students to explore the AP course learning objectives while meeting state requirements.

Formative as well as summative assessments are given when appropriate to detemine student understanding of content, mastery of skills, and overall progress. Since human patterns are repeated and history builds on itself, cumulative summative assessments will be administered approximately at the end of each quarter. Grades are accrued on a point basis through test scores, quizzes, projects, and class participatiomn.
