TOG: how much non-Western Civ.?


Recommended Posts

Every year plan includes 3-8 weeks of non-western history. Also there are times in other weeks that you touch on a non western culture as they interact with the west. I'm going by my increasingly faulty memory here:


Year 1:

Week 10: The Indus Valley, Hinduism, and Buddhism

Week 11: Ancient China: Confucius and Taoism

Week 12: Ancient Americas: Inuit, Mound Builders, and Mayas


Year 2:

Week 3: Byzantine Empire and Rise of Islam

Week 8: The Mongols, Marco Polo, and the Far East

Week 14: Spanish Dominion and the New World: Aztecs and Incas


Year 3: - this year plan focuses a lot on indigenous peoples met through colonization/imperialism and is basically 1/2 and 1/2 each week listed

Week 7: Reshaping Europe and South America

Week 8: South America in Transition

Week 9: Monroe and the American Hemisphere

Week 19: Westerners in Asia

Week 28: Introducing Africa and Reforming Empires

Week 29: The Scramble for Empire

Week 30: Imperialism and Culture


Year 4:

Week 19: India's Independence

Week 20: China's Revolution

Week 21: Truman: Korea & the Red Scare


TOG is western civ heavy, it is also US history heavy for the dialectic and under sets. But in all cases you are not spending significant time at any one period, with the exception of year 1 which devotes a lot of time to Isreal and Rome and a good amount of time in Greece and US history in Year 2. But ultimately it never feels like enough time. Before our co-op days we would camp out at certain periods and cultures to study them more in depth.
