    In World Cultures, students will study the major events that helped to form the modern world. Themes of war, disease, culture, art, technology, exploration, and colonization will be explored in various times and places throughout this class. Students will analyze the historical perspectives of different time periods and will utilize maps, documents, and artistic works in primary source analysis. This course will develop an understanding of social studies terminology as well as interpretations of the themes of government, politics, and economics and their effects on various World Cultures. This course goes beyond the rote memorization of isolated facts and fosters the development of higher level thinking skills by encouraging students to make their own historical assessments and evaluations.
     
    In Sociology students will gain a better understanding of themselves and their role in society. Sociologists recognize that the groups or social structures that one belongs to have a profound influence over the way that individual thinks, feels and acts. Sociology provides tools to understand what these social structures are, how they affect our beliefs and behaviors, and how individuals relate to each other. Students will think critically and objectively as they apply sociological principles to everyday events, uses and problems.
     
    I look forward to a very exciting and wonderful year at Matawan Regional! Go Huskies! :)
