Welcome to Global History and Geography I and II
"The past actually happened but history is only what someone wrote down."
A. Whitney Brown
Global History and Geography is a two year course beginning with the Paleolithic Age and ending with current world history. The first year we study Ancient Civilizations of the world to the Age of Absolutism. The second year includes the Age of Enlightenment to today's events in the world. At the end of year two, students will be required to pass a New York State Global History and Geography regents exam.
