Welcome to World History, the best class in high school.  This is the class where you get to learn why your life and society is the way it is.  The class where you get to learn about other cultures and ideas, a class the quite literally broadens all of your horizons.  If you love math, you will love World History because you have to analyze different factors and come up with an answer.  If you love art and music, you will love World History, because you will be able to spot the roots of European and African music in the music that is on your iPod.  If you love science, then you will love World History because you will be able to test theories and see the development of your ideas supported with observed facts.  There is something for everyone in this class, so I hope you will be inspired by the history of the world as much as I am.
