Legacy High School


World History, Honors

Ms. Amie Miner
2019 - 2020 School Year
Social Studies
This one-year course examines World History from approximately the 1300s to modern day. This includes the study of geography, history, and culture in global regions, with an emphasis on historical inquiry. Students analyze significant events, individuals, developments and process across the world within this time frame. This content area should be taught from multiple and varied perspectives for a vivid and complex picture of history. The emphasis is global in nature with a multicultural approach, rather than a Eurocentric approach. Effective instruction in social studies incorporates both the disciplinary skills and the content themes, requires historical thinking, robust academic discussions, and engaging writing instruction. This course is designated as honors level by the accelerated instructional pacing and depth of content. This course fulfills the World History/Geography credits required for high school graduation.
