Middle school students enrolled in this course will closely examine the changes and influences brought about by those ancient civilizations and their contributions to modern societies today (i.e. Ancient Greece, Rome, and China).  Students will conduct inquiries on the success and failures of ancient cultures and how we have learned from the past and examine the potential impacts for our future. Over the course of four quarters, course content encourages students to think critically and carefully about the challenges and opportunities facing the planet's global community in the 21st century.
