Standard Course of Study:

World History at the ninth grade level is a survey course that gives students
the opportunity to explore recurring themes of human experience common to
civilizations around the globe from ancient to contemporary times.2 An histori-
cal approach will be at the center of the course. The application of the themes
of geography and an analysis of the cultural traits of civilizations will help
students understand how people shape their world and how their world shapes
them. As students examine the historical roots of significant events, ideas,
movements, and phenomena, they encounter the contributions and patterns of
living in civilizations around the world. Students broaden their historical per-
spectives as they explore ways societies have dealt with continuity and change,
exemplified by issues such as war and peace, internal stability and strife, and
the development of institutions. To become informed citizens, students require
knowledge of the civilizations that have shaped the development of the United
States. World History provides the foundation that enables students to acquire
this knowledge which will be used in the study of Civics and Economics and
United States History.
Strands: Geographic Relationships, Historic Perspectives, Economics and
Development, Government and Active Citizenship, Global Connections, Techno-
logical Influences and Society, Individual Identity and Development, Cultures
