Our class work this year will follow the standards set forth by the South Carolina Department of Education. We will focus on Modern World History Standards MWH 1 – 8. You will find attached to this syllabus a copy of those standards that explains in detail the topics that will be covered this year. You can also view these standards on line by going to the SCDE website at www.ed.sc.gov/ . Beyond the use of the text I will be attempting to integrate the use of technology in as many ways as possible. It is my hope that the students will become adept in the art of research. Most of this will be done online in the computer lab when available. We will also study primary sources whenever available.
