Full course description

This is one of the USBE social studies endorsement courses, designed to help Utah teachers complete their endorsements in a convenient and inexpensive manner. These endorsement courses are rigorous college courses, and as such registration is limited to two per term. This course will meet the requirement for World History, modern. There is no course pre-requisite. 

World History 2 is a multimedia course for secondary school teachers that looks at global patterns through time and seeing history as an integrated whole. Topics are studied in a general chronological order but each is examined through a thematic lens, showing how people and societies experience both integration and differences. The course features interviews with leading world history textbook authors and nationally known historians. Themes include land and labor relationships; early global commodities; food, demographics and culture; ideas the shape the world; rethinking the rise of the West; global industrialization; imperial designs; colonial identities; global war and peace; people shaping the world; globalization and economics; global popular culture; and world history and identity. Much of the content for World Civilizations 2 comes from "Bridging World History" from Annenburg Learner. With each week, it is expected that participants will complete the readings, watch the videos, do the activities, complete the graded assignment, and complete the graded discussion. The assignments will cover the entire week's content.
