World History


World History is a broad survey of the most significant world events since 500 CE, a period of roughly 1,500 years.

Segment One focuses on the period 500 to 1500, which has been called the Middle Ages, between the end of the Roman Empire and the Modern Age. Review essential information about what made the Roman Empire so significant, as well as essential information about Judaism and Christianity as background to the rise of the third major monotheistic religion, Islam. Study the earliest civilizations of sub-Saharan Africa and the Americas, and then wrap up the segment with three simultaneous major events: the Age of Discovery, Protestant Reformation, and Scientific Revolution. The Middle Ages ended with a tornado of changes!

In Segment Two, focused on 1500 to present, you’ll learn about advancements in science and thought during the Age of Enlightenment, as well as the social and political revolutions that followed as a result. As you meander through the 19th century, you will learn about the transformation from an agricultural to an industrial world and the many changes that resulted from that shift. Then, learn about the interconnectedness of nationalism and colonialism and the two massive world wars that were the end result. As you explore the modern era, students learn about developments in today’s world and the implications that historical events have on each of us.
