Comparative Civilizations 12 Course Details

Teacher

Kim Lemieux / Laura Blake

Prerequisite

Social Studies 11 Recommended for Grade 11 and 12 students

Description

Comparative Civilizations 12, developed at SIDES, will take you on a journey from East Africa, home of our early ancestors, to ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome and finally the Islamic civilizations. Throughout the course we will examine the fundamental elements of civilization, including art, literature, architecture, and belief systems, as well as scientific development. We will also look at the reasons civilizations develop and the reasons why they eventually decline, as well as the ways in which they influence one another. There is a significant emphasis on research in this course, with a small research assignment at the end of the first five chapters. The sixth and final chapter is a larger independent research project. We also offer an alternate unit for students wishing to explore a different civilization than those studied in the course. Resources include World Civilizations: A Comparative Study and movies embedded in the online course.
