The course content focuses on a series of themes on how the ideas of how we are governed have changed over time. In order to promote successful learning, the course has been broken into several chronological units. Students will study The Enlightenment, The French Revolution and Romanticism, Latin American Independence Movements, Immigration, World War I and II from a global perspective, The Cold War, and the Post-Cold War world. Engaging instructional techniques (including constructivism, engagement with varied primary and secondary sources, Socratic Seminars, etc.) ensure students remain consistently engaged and challenged.
The class sizes are approximately 28 students. Academic teachers have 2.5 hours of prep time for curriculum planning, meeting, integrating, and assessing. ASA does not use textbooks; therefore, this content teacher must be well versed in using primary and secondary resources appropriate for this grade level.
