What is World Cultures About?
The focus of our course will be to master world cultures and world geography using critical thinking strategies, examination of primary and secondary source materials, academic writing practice, inquiry-style lessons, projects, and more. This course is designed to help students acquire a better understanding of culture, history, government, economics, current events, and the world as a whole. Using critical thinking and problem-solving, students will be better able to use evidence and historical context to make connections to the modern world and its people.
The focus of the Pre-AP course will be to master World Cultures and World Geography using Pre-AP designed strategies. This course is designed to help students master the same material, but also begin using the higher-level thinking skills that will eventually be required on the AP test. Pre-AP students can expect differentiation of curriculum based on examinations of Primary Source Documents, Secondary Source Documents, Writing Samples, and Method of Inquiry.
