History is about people. Rather than viewing history as a series of events and dates, this course looks at the interactions of the people behind the events: cooperation and conflict, alliances and arguments. By examining how history is influenced by people’s dreams and goals and shaped by their decisions and actions, students gain an understanding of what happened and why, and gain insight into how one person can make a profound difference in the world. In this course, students will develop a global world view. By identifying patterns of behavior that tie together events and people around the world, they will begin to recognize the role of the indomitable human spirit. Students are guided in their study by a variety of assignments, including research, writing, student-led projects, learning reflections, and discussions.
