SED 271 - Intersections of History and Geography


Semester Hours: 3
Periodically
This course examines the intersection of history and geography while exploring different ideas about cultural diversity, multiculturalism, and globalism and their implications for social studies curriculum. Students establish critical concepts and use them to analyze the impact of geography, history, and culture on Western and non-Western societies. Indigenous world literature is used to examine cultural and geographical diversity. The course supports the ability of social studies teachers to integrate essential questions, themes, and conceptual understandings into a chronologically organized curriculum. The chronological course divides world history into seven eras sandwiched between an introduction to global history and a unit that focuses on global connections. The chronological divisions are the ancient world: civilizations and religions (4000 BCE-AD 500); expanding zones of exchange and encounter (500-1200); global interactions (1200-1650); the first global age (1450-1770); an age of revolutions (1750-1914); a half century of crisis and achievement (1900-1945); and the 20th century since 1945.
