This 10th-grade curriculum guide provides an in-depth study of the revolutions which accompanied the rise of modern Europe and shaped European cultural patterns. Eight "themes" with content outlines are developed: (1) the emergence of modern Europe from the Renaissance to the commercial and scientific revolutions, (2) the growth of democracy, (3) the Industrial Revolution, (4) Nationalism, (5) the rise and decline of European Colonialism, (6) war and peace in the 20th century--World Wars I and II, and totalitarianism, (7) European cultural development in the 19th and 20th Centuries--the new ideas that changed man's living patterns and his view of himself and his universe, and (8) the changes in Europe since World War II. Materials include selected bibliographies on Western Civilization, suggested learning activities, ideas for independent study projects, photographs, cartoons, maps, and excerpts from newspapers and books.
