Global History & Geography 9
This is a two year course which examines Global History and Geography chronologically. The grade nine curriculum focuses on the history of civilization starting from the beginning of man to the French Revolution. Important historical, geographic, political and economic characteristics of the societies that developed in each region of the world are studied. Students study the six major themes of Global History: cultural diffusion, trade, migrations, belief systems, conflict and the establishment of multi-regional empires- as well as the major events and turning points in history. These themes are supported by the emphasis on developing interpretation skills through the use of primary documents, secondary sources, political cartoons, map reading and chart and graph interpretations in relation to the thematic essay and the document-based essay. This course fulfills the first half of a two-year sequence. Students are required to take the New York State Regents Examination at the end of Global History and Geography 10.
