Global History & Geography 10
Description of Global History and Geography 10
In the second year of the two-year Global Studies program, the students continue to study major areas of the world. In this course Africa, India, China, Japan, Western Europe, the former Soviet Union, Eastern Europe, and the Middle East are explored. While the course is organized chronologically, students will also study geography, the historical setting, the dynamics of change, contemporary nations, culture, economic development, and global relationships.
In self-contained social studies, the goal is to improve students’ knowledge of history while teaching students life skills such as research, reading comprehension, map analysis, and organization. All skills are aligned with the New York State standards and Common Core Standards in reading and writing. Each student’s social studies education will be tailored to his/her IEP goals and individual needs.
At the end of the course, students will sit for the Global History and Geography Regents Examination. This examination covers two years of material, from ninth and tenth grade. Although students review content daily, review at home throughout the school year is encouraged!
