World Civilization (HIS 112): A Learning Adventure of Man's Journey into the Modern World.
Joy, Carla M.
A course outline is provided for students enrolled in the second 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 presented for the use of a reflective-inquiry approach to learning in the course, followed by suggestions for completing the six units that make up the course. After specifying course evaluation methods, the outline presents the six learning units which examine: (1) the age of revolution; (2) the age of progress; (3) the First World War; (4) the Second World War; (5) modern genetics; and (6) the future. For each learning unit, the course outline provides a perspective from the standpoint of an appropriate discipline; the learning goals of the unit; a brief statement underscoring the importance of the period or topic in question; and student tasks and learning objectives related to these tasks. A student profile sheet; deadline dates for assignments; guides to world history books, periodicals, and videocassettes; and bibliographies are included in the course outline. (HB)
