High School Summer School / Virtual Courses -
Spring/Summer 2021

Students investigate the foundational ideas that shaped the modern world in the Middle East, Africa, Europe, Asia, and the Americas, and then explore the economic, political, and social revolutions that have transformed human history. Units include Imperialism and the Great War, The Interwar Years and World War II, The Cold War and Its Effects, Decolonization and Independence, Contemporary Global Issues: Human Rights, Contemporary Global Issues: Economics and Technology. Students construct meaningful understandings of fundamental themes in history, geography, and economics regarding persisting world problems and issues.

Students also sharpen their writing skills in shorter tasks and assignments, and by writing full informative and argumentative essays.
