10 Themes of World History In order to better learn and approach World History and to give it a framework for understanding.There are five themes in World History that we use to accomplish this.They are SPICE
11 Cornell Notes Write your title across the top page For each Theme World History Themes – SPICEFor each ThemeLeft Hand Colum = theme titleRight Hand Colum =Bullitt Point NotesSynthesize a one sentence summary of the paragraph explaining the importance of the theme.
12 Thematic ApproachStudents in this course must learn to view history thematically. The AP World History course is organized around five overarching themes that serve as unifying threads throughout the course, helping students to relate what is particular about each time period or society to a “big picture” of history. The themes also provide a way to organize comparisons and analyze change and continuity over time. Consequently, virtually all study of history in this class will be tied back to these themes by utilizing a “SPICE” acronym.
13 Social Development and transformation of social structures Gender roles and relationsFamily and kinshipRacial and ethnic constructionsSocial and economic classesSentence Summary:
14 Check for Understanding In a constructed response, explain why having a social theme helps us understand world history.
15 Political State-building, expansion, and conflict Political structures and forms of governanceEmpiresNations and nationalismRevolts and revolutionsRegional, trans-regional, and global structures and organizations
16 Check for Understanding In a constructed response, explain why having a political theme helps us understand world history.
17 Interaction between Humans and the Environment Demography and diseaseMigrationPatterns of settlementTechnology
18 Check for Understanding In a constructed response, explain why having a environmental interaction theme helps us understand world history.
19 Culture Development and interaction of cultures Religions Belief systems, philosophies, and ideologiesScience and technologyThe arts and architecture
20 Check for Understanding In a constructed response, explain why having a cultural theme helps us understand world history.
21 Economic Creation, expansion, and interaction of economic systems Agricultural and pastoral productionTrade and commerceLabor systemsIndustrializationCapitalism and socialism
22 Check for Understanding In a constructed response, explain why having a economic theme helps us understand world history.
23 DOL Identify and explain each of the five themes of world history. Explain why it is important to use themes while learning about world history in a 3 to 5 sentence constructed response.
24 Note TakingI will learn the strategies to properly take notes independently using an AP World History textbook.
25 Development of the Human Experience. I will analyze the development of the human experience through the Paleolithic Era and the Neolithic Revolution.
26 Bell work Describe the Hominids Explain the migration of Homo Erectus and Homo Sapiens.Why is their migration impor tant?
27 Note Taking SkillsOur basic structure is going to be Cornell Notes however with a few modifications.World History is about the “Big Idea” or “Big Picture” and not the specific details.You are not an effective copy machine, thus you are not expected to copy the whole chapter into your notes.
28 The HominidsOut of Eastern Africa, bones from 5 million years ago found“Lucy” discovered in EthiopiaEstimated date of death: 3.5 million years agoAnimals adapt themselves to environmentHominids adapt environment to themselvesUse of toolsLanguageComplex cooperative social structures
29 Australopithecus “the southern ape” Had opposable thumbs and fashioned toolsChoppers, scrappers…food preparation tools
30 Homo Erectus “Upright-walking” man Smarter than Australopithecus Fashioned mores sophisticated toolsCleavers, hard axesDevelopment of the understanding of tending fireCook foodDefense against predatorsSource of artificial heatIncreased intelligence and language skillsCommunicate complex ideas like coordinated hunts
31 Migration of Homo Erectus Effective tools, fire, intelligence, and communication allowed Homo Erectus to migrate.Homo Erectus migrated to areas in Europe, Asia, and Africa
36 Homo Sapiens Adaption to the Environment By 13,000 BCE Homo sapiens in every inhabitable part of the worldArchaeological finds:Sophisticated toolsChoppers, scrapers, axes, knives, bows, arrowsCave and hutlike dwellingsUse of fire, animal skins for warmth.Hunted several mammal species to extinctionClimactic change may have accelerated processTheir growth led to the extinction of the Mammoth
37 Homo Sapiens “Consciously thinking humans” Migration of Homo Sapiens Larger brains and remarkable intelligence gave Homo Sapiens a survival advantage because they understood the world around them and exploited resources and communicated complex tasks.Migration of Homo SapiensTheir intelligence provided them with more mobility because they could adapt the environment and move into colder regions that the Homo Erectus could not.Spread to every part of the world including New Guinea, Austrailia and the Western Hemisphere.
38 Note Taking PracticeRead the Paleolithic Society section and create notes for each subsection as well.Remember:Read looking for the “big picture” concepts1st Paragraph is the “Thesis” of the Section/Subsection,Read it on 14 and write the thesis across the top under you section heading.Hunting and gathering peoplesInclude information here proving your thesisSocial Order and HuntingPaleolithic CultureNeanderthal Peoples – BurialCro-Magnon PeoplesVenus FigurinesCave Paintings
39 Paleolithic SocietyThesis: “Old Stone Age” Humans in this era forged for food as hunters and gatherers. (Developed a richer culture)Economy and Society of Hunting and Gathering PeoplesHunting and gathering required movement which disallowed for accumulated wealth with social classes.More Equality between sexes because women provided more caloric food consumption be gathering than men did by hunting.Hunting big game successful because of coordinated attacks and new bows and spears.Abondent areas began to see more perminant settlements arrive.
40 Paleolithic Society Paleolithic Culture Neanderthal Peoples had more ritual burials which show a development of culture in the human experience.Cro-Magnon PeoplesHomo Sapiens SapiensMore developed the NeanderthalsNew weapons- Spear Throwers, Bows, HarpoonsVenus Figures- Importance of fertility demonstrates value in life and growing the communityCave paintings- Demonstrate culture (Pride in the hunt, Religious connection to the hunt) and intellectual power of the human species
41 Notes ExpectationAt the end of your notes on each chapter you need to write a 5 sentence summary/reflection for each of the SPICE themes summarizing the key “big ideas” from the chapter concerning each theme.You need to create 5 questions
42 Bell WorkExplain the shift to agriculture in the Neolithic Era in 7 sentences, include the importance.
