A picture of world flags

A year-long study of global history and its cultures.  We will work hard to actively engage in the work of Geography and History by acquiring, organizing, analyzing, and interpreting geographic & historical information in order to understand the complexity of the world and its cultures. As a historian/geographer you will learn about cultures from all over the world, while acquiring a better understanding of the physical geography and history of the world.  It is my desire that as you proceed through this class, you learn how to make sensible judgments about matters involving relationships between the physical environment and society.  In addition, you learn to appreciate Earth as the homeland of humankind and provide insight for wise management decisions about how the planet’s resources should be used.  In the end, this class will help you better understand the complexities of cultures throughout the world, global interdependence, and how you can become a better global citizen.
