World History Fall 2015

History 101, Sec. 03 Dr. Mahdavi

Student Learning Goals for Content and Skill Acquisition: This is a course in the history of the human community from approximately 1500 C.E. to the present. The course differs from the traditional Western Civilization class in that the entire world rather than Europe alone is the focus of study. The central questions the course will ask are these: What is Modernity, that is, what do we mean when we ask of "the modern world" in which we live? How have the political, social, cultural, and economic forces that we associate with modernity changed our world and its people during the past 500 years? Why has the intercommunication, interaction, and interdependence of the peoples of the world become so much more intense during the past 500 years than they were in earlier ages? How and why did western civilization rise to global domination in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, and how has the challenge of western power and cultural prestige affected the course of history of all the World's people? Finally a question that we should be asking throughout the semester: how have the patterns of world history over the past 500 years determined or affected 1) the way we now live and think, and 2) our prospects for peace, prosperity, and the "pursuit of happiness" in the coming decades?

This course is NOT primarily a narrative survey of civilizations, dynasties, and nations. The history of humankind is more than the sum of the histories of particular countries or empires. The most important developments in history have not taken place merely within the boundaries of nations. Rather, large-scale patterns of history have unfolded in continental, hemispheric, or global settings, drawing peoples of different languages and cultures into common historical experiences. This course, then, will develop a number of themes stressing the interrelations of societies and cultures and comparing the experience of peoples and civilizations with one another.

This course is also one of four Foundations courses that you will take in the area of Humanities and Fine Arts. Upon completing of this area of Foundations, you will be able to: 1) analyze written, visual, or performed texts in the humanities and fine arts with sensitivity to their diverse cultural contexts and historical moments. 2) describe various aesthetic and other value systems and the ways they are communicated across time and cultures. 3) identify issues in the humanities that have personal and global relevance. 4) demonstrate the ability to approach complex problems and ask complex questions drawing upon knowledge of the humanities.

Examinations and Map quiz:
There will be one full-period examination during the mid-semester, plus a final exam during the testing period in December. These exams will consist of essay questions only. In addition, we will have a 15-minute Map Quiz on September 18th. A study guide for the map quiz is provided and enclosed to your class syllabus (see page seven.)

We will have six random quizzes during the Fall semester. All six quizzes would be in form of multiple choices. Questions will invariably relate to the assignment of that day, please read the daily assignment before coming to class. There will be no make-ups of random quizzes for any reason. (Please do not ask!) Rather in calculating final grades, a student’s one lowest quiz grade (including “zero” grade for absence) will be dropped.

Term Paper
After choosing your topic, write one paragraph describing how you would approach discussion of your topic and provide your sources as well. The period of your paper should be within/from early 1500s to present time. Your topic should be very specific and narrowed down. For example: political events, economic systems, or social issues are very specifics. Avoid biography!!
Term paper topic proposal are due on Monday, October 19th.

1. It should be between 4-5 pages (typed and double spaced) in length.
2. Use at least three sources; they should be a combination of articles and books or books alone, other than your textbooks. In addition to your three proper sources, you may use Internet sources with the sites that are edu or org domain. The following site has excellent academic articles that may be useful to you. Scholarly Journal Archive (
3. Your paper should have an Introduction, Theme/Body, and a Conclusion.
4. Your paper should contain a Chicago style bibliography of your sources (see )
5. Use Chicago style footnotes or endnotes when quoting or citing data (see )
6. Do a spelling and grammar check on your final paper.
7. Turn your report in by the deadline if you do not wish to be penalized for an overdue paper. ½ letter grade penalty will be applied for each past due day.

Term papers are due on Monday, November 23rd.

Keep in mind that each class lecture of discussion is part of a continuing story. When you skip class, you miss some of the plot and you will soon be lost. Therefore, I am allocating 2% (extra credit) for class participation. It will be awarded to those students who continuously participate throughout the semester.
Grade Determination: Map Quiz (100 points) 10% Random Quizzes (100 points) 15% (5 quizzes in all) Term Paper (100 points) 20% Mid-term Examination 25% Final Examination 30%

You will receive both a numerical score and a letter grade for each exam. Criteria for grading would as follow:
|93-100% |A |80-82% |B- |67-69% |D+ |
|90 – 92% |A- |77-79% |C+ |63-66% |D |

Midterm Review

...Life in Mexico Hello everyone, my name is Jose Rodriguez. I am 34 years old now. I came from Durango, Mexico, which located in the northern part of the country. I was a high school math teacher in Mexico, and had a very nice family with my wife, two sons and one daughter. These years, the unstable security issues and the growing drug related crime around my city made me worried a lot. I tried to move my whole families to another city; however, I just cannot afford it. Unfortunately, the bad things finally happed. Last year, the local drug dealers took my older son away and forced him to do the drug production. I reported this to the local police, but the drug dealers had a better relation with the policeman than I did. One week later, they send my son back home, but he was dying. After four hours emergency operation, my son’s life was saved, however, he was diagnosed with uremia, which surely caused by the physical contractions between the toxic drug chemicals and my son’s body, according to the doctor. The medical payment for my son is extremely high, so, I have to find some other way to make more money. Normally, people like me in Mexico have two ways to make more money. One is the easier way by dealing with drug; another is the harder way by crossing the US boarder to chasing dream in America. I hate drugs, so, there would be only one option for me.
