    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course to me was the glue that made all my other classes collaborate. I was able to see how math, sciences, arts, and languages all connected. Everything mixed in and I was able to see how influences from long ago are still seen today, even in day to day life. After I took this course I was able to make these connections in all of my other classes. It was an eye opener into how every subject wasn't so different. I think that when we are able to integrate the subjects our learning becomes exponential because we are finally making the connections of how everything is related. It gives hindsight that 'we didn't start the fire'. At anytime for any subject, we can look to the past to give us a better idea on how to handle our present and future.

    Course highlights:

    My favorite part of this course is when we learned about Islam. The goal of this course was to see how the past has shaped western culture today. Learning about Islam was unexpected because it seems like the opposite of western culture, but I didn't realize just how much it really was important to it. The spread of Islam was happened after the fall of Rome, this is also when the Barbarians are pillaging and destroying cities. Luckily for Europe, while they were going through the Dark Ages Islamic religious leaders were archiving and improving documents, arts, mathematics, sciences, etc. The Islamic leaders are the reason we know about Socrates and other famous Greeks and Romans. We owe a lot to those leaders, but yet in history classes up to now I have never even known they were part of saving western culture.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    My advice would be to take notes that you can compare to your other notes. A lot of the time through this course we would go through the time periods of the playwrights, and then we would go back to the beginning and go through the time periods with all of the war leaders. We did this with several different important people. I think that it would be nice to have notes that would overlap. That way you could see who was alive near the same time.
