Joy, Carla M.
A course outline is provided for students enrolled in the first semester of a world civilization course developed at the Red Rocks campus of the Community College of Denver. First, course guidelines present reasons for studying world civilization and specify instructional goals, course materials, and prerequisite knowledge and skills. Next, a rationale is provided for the reflective-inquiry approach to learning used in the course, followed by suggestions for completing the seven learning units which make up the course. After specifying course evaluation methods, the outline presents the seven learning units which focus on: (1) primal man; (2) the agricultural revolution; (3) the geneses of civilizations; (4) the growth of civilizations; (5) the renaissance; (6) the birth of the modern world; and (7) the scientific revolution. For each learning unit, the outline provides a perspective on the topic from the standpoint of an appropriate discipline; the learning goals of the unit; a brief statement underscoring the importance of the topic or period in question; and student tasks and learning objectives related to these tasks. A student profile sheet, deadline dates for assignments, world history map guides, and world history guides and bibliographies are included in the course outline. (HB)
