Global Studies II
In this course, students learn about issues that affect the world over from a modern and historical perspective. Empathy for others, social justice, and the need for people to work together is the common theme throughout the units. This class particularly focuses on regions in Africa, the Middle East, Asia, and Europe (some variation year to year) with issues on human rights, genocide, population demographics, etc. Several memoirs are used to learn about different experiences and events in the past such as A Long Way Gone and Persepolis. Projects are designed to improve students’ ability with writing, speaking, and reading.
