World History 9th Grade Syllabus

“ There is nothing new in the world except the history you do not know.” 

Harry S. Truman

Welcome!

Course Description: This course directs students to think critically about the forces that combine to shape the world today. It will span world historical topics, events, and people from 1300 AD to the present highlighting economic, social, and political changes over time.


Why study history? Many people say it is to keep from making the same mistakes again. I say it is to help us understand the world in which we find ourselves living at the present. By understanding the past we can be better citizens in the present. Everything that has taken place in history has helped to shape today's world. Knowing and understanding the past allows us a better understanding of today’s society, politics, and culture.Students becoming good citizens is the main goal of any history class. 

 While we study history we will develop skills such as reading comprehension, interpreting  information, problem solving, communicating, organizing information, taking notes, and conducting research. These skills are used daily in many professions such as electricians, engineers, doctors, nurses, physical therapists, plumbers, carpenters, computer programmers, teachers, and writers just to name a few.


“If you want to understand today, you have to search yesterday.”

-Pearl S. Buck
