Early World History & Geography

Course ID: S813

July 6 – July 23, 2021 from 8:00am – 1:00pm

The thee-week long Early World History and Geography freshman course will allow students to develop the fundamental historical-thinking skills of chronological reasoning, evaluating cause and effect relationships, identifying historical significance, as well as examining various perspectives and historical interpretations in order to provide students a more diverse and inclusive view of the world. The course will focus on primary and secondary source analysis to promote critical thinking and writing skills, and will also incorporate geography and current event presentations throughout each unit of study: Muslim Empires, Medieval Africa, the East Asian World, Pre-Columbian America, and the Age of Exploration. This class will cover approximately from 500 C.E. to the late 1700s C.E. and is designed as a precursor to the sophomore level World History course. UC/CSU approved.
