Students will gain deep understandings of the early modern time period as they explore the culture, conflicts, and challenges of key empires and countries of the eastern world. Through critical thinking, creativity, and comprehension, students will understand the impact that the events of the 1400s-1800s has on our world today. Throughout each unit of study, students will look through the lens of the Bible to see how the Early Modern Eastern World impacted history in the decisions that were made, the actions that were taken and legacy that was left.


Journey with me to the Early Modern Eastern World. As we explore the 1400s-1800s, our travels will begin on the Silk Road as we learn about the importance of this road and how it connected the east to the west. In this year-long course, we will study the beliefs and customs of people in this time period, understand the impact gunpowder had on our world from the moment it was created by accident, and dive into people and structures of government that affect and influence us still today! You will have opportunities to be creative and think critically through exciting and fun learning activities all year long!
