World History [Humanities]. Course of Study.
Idaho State Dept. of Education, Boise.
World history guides students to an understanding of culture, geography, and diversity of expression using a historical chronology that illustrates humankind's connections throughout the world. The state of Idaho mandates a core requirement of two credits to be completed in the field of arts and humanities. To achieve success in this core requirement, a student must gain content knowledge, practice critical thinking skills, and experience personal expression in the arts and humanities disciplines. Following an introduction, this Idaho course-of-study guide is divided into four blocks: (1) "Origins"; (2) "Developing Societies"; (3) "Conflict and Change"; and (4) "Relationships." Each block is subdivided by "Goal and Objectives"; "Cultural Reflections"; "Idaho Achievement Standards"; "Suggested Activities"; and "Suggested Materials." Appendix A outlines Idaho Achievement Standards; Appendix B provides sample lessons and additional activities for three of the four blocks. (BT)
