This course accommodates students ready for an accelerated program of study, and an in-depth, detailed understanding of human development in a global context. A thematic, conceptual approach follows a chronological sequence from 1450 to the current globalization of science, technology, and culture. Both primary and secondary texts and documents are used, as well as Document-Based Questions. Students will study historical issues of major significance in relation to modern politics, cultural influences, and a world economy. Topics may include: the fall of European feudalism, the Renaissance and the Enlightenment, major empires, mercantilism and the slave trade, political revolutions and independence movements, western dominance, and the impact of communication and technological progress.

Honors students must meet increased academic responsibility in homework, class discussion, computer/technology proficiency, research skills, evidence-based argumentation, creative note taking, and reading hours. Successful Honors students are inquisitive, self-motivated, and possess a strong, consistent work ethic. It is strongly recommended that students enrolled in World History Honors are also enrolled in English I Honors.
