    B 7
     
    Course Description  
     The study of history rests on knowledge of dates, names, places, events, and ideas. Historical understanding, however, requires students to engage in historical thinking, raise questions, and marshal evidence in support of their answers. Students engaged in historical thinking draw upon chronological thinking, historical comprehension, historical analysis and interpretation, historical research, and decision making. These skills are developed through the study of significant historical substance from the era or society being studied.
    The topics explored are as follows:
                       
    • Era I: Human Origins and Early Civilizations, Prehistory to 1000 B.C.E.                                   
    • Era II: Classical Civilizations and Rise of Religious Traditions,1000 B.C.E. to 500 C.E.                   
    • Era III: Post-Classical Civilizations, 300 to 1000 C.E.
    • Era IV: Regional Interactions, 1000 to 1500 C.E.
