Military History

Grades 11-12 / 1 Semester Course – 1.0 credit

This course will delve into both a tragic and fascinating recurring theme in the human story: armed conflict.  From a primarily western civilization perspective, students will learn to think critically about war as it has occurred across time and continents.  They will analyze how cultural, political, and social institutions have been causal agents of war as well as how they have been shaped by war.

Rationale:  This elective will provide interested students the opportunity to further examine military-related topics discussed in World Studies and U.S. History.  It will also provide a more robust  historical context for understanding modern conflicts.
