African Cultures Honors
Instructor: Diaz   
African and Asian Civilizations and Cultures Honors is a challenging, two-semester course that explores the African and Asian worlds. The first unit concentrates on physical and cultural anthropology. In the Africa unit, the relationship of geography, history and culture is explored; while in the Middle East unit, historical foundations of modern problems and issues are examined. In the spring semester, students will analyze the historical and cultural trends in East and South Asia, paying close attention to the impact of colonialism on traditional patterns of life in the regions. Throughout the course, students will engage in critical analysis of cause and effects; compare geographic characteristics, religions, and political structures; and assess the impact of European involvement in the historical development of the African and Asian worlds. Students will be expected to think critically, write proficiently, and discuss enthusiastically the content of the course.

Grading Policy:á

In grading I use a total point system. Students will always know how much an assignment is worth before it is given. Students will be assessed through Quizzes, Tests, Homework, and Projects. Students will be able to keep track of their grades on Genesis. For Further information see Class Expectations and Policies.
