20th Century World History 12

History 12 provides students with an introduction to 20th century world history with a particular emphasis on world conflicts and their impact on people. In addition to learning about historical events, students will be guided through various activities designed to further develop their skills in analysis and interpretation.

The course consists of four units that address the three big ideas of the curriculum.

1. Nationalist movements can unite people in common causes or lead to intense conflict between different groups.

2. The breakdown of long-standing imperialist structures created new economic and political systems.

3. The rapid development and proliferation of communication and transportation technologies in the 20th century led to profound changes in personal and national identities.
