About this course

Join me for an engaging and entertaining introduction to the Medieval and Early Modern world! Starting with the fall of the Roman Empire, we will explore how people around the world have shaped their lives and stories to create the world we live in today. While we will talk about some names and dates, the emphasis is on understanding the threads of history that tie us all together, and connect us to the past.

What you'll learn

The topics discussed will begin generally with the fall of the Roman Empire, and move forward through time. Emphasis will be on worldwide developments and impact, rather than focusing on a single region. As we reach the 1800’s, we will shift to a more thematic approach in order to discuss the entire world and the impact that developments like industrialisation, railways, the slave trade, nationalism, and revolution has shaped our world today. Students will also learn about bias from historical sources, and will practice critical thinking in assessing and using various different sources of information.  

Course Topics:

Please note, some topics may be excluded or added based on student interest – focusing on topics that encourage engagement is the goal!  

  • End of the Roman Empire
  • Early Medieval Europe
  • Islamic Empires
  • Genghis Khan and the Mongols
  • Mughal India
  • Ming China
  • Incan Andes
  • Indigenous North America
  • Expansionist Europe: Trade and Colonisation
  • Industrialisation
  • Haitian and American Revolutions
  • French Revolution
  • Food
  • Nationalism
  • World Wars
  • Sharing!

Every week, students will be introduced to a new time period and we will explore what happened, why, and the impact this had on the wider world. Students will engage in real world activities using common household objects in order to clarify their understanding, as well as discussing how the topic relates to their daily lives. Discussions will be based around maps, photos, and drawings of places, people, and objects from the past, permitting an object-based approach to learning about history.  

Materials & Homework

Every week, students will be expected to work on a timeline based on the course content – this should take no more than 10-15 mins per week. At the end of the course, they will share what they have created with the class in a 1-2 min presentation. This will require students to prepare and rehearse their presentation outside of class time.  ‍
