History 10

Course Description

History 10, which focuses on ancient and medieval history, allows students to develop an understanding of the concept of civilization by examining the origins of civilization and comparing some civilizations that have contributed to the nature of the modern world. 

The course has six broad chronological divisions: The Evolution of Human Beings; The Birth of Civilizations (including Mesopotamia, Egypt, China, Africa, and the Americas); Greece; Rome; The Middle Ages; and The Renaissance and Reformation. Each of these divisions can be considered from a number of points of view, including geography, archaeology, society, language, religion, and politics. Major themes could be developed spanning the broad chronological period (for example, agriculture, development of government, religion, and revolutions).
