Asian Cultures Honors
Instructor: Diaz   
áááá Hello! My name is Ms.áDiaz
Welcome to African and Asian cultures!

Course Summary for African and Asian CPA/CPBá
áIn the fall semester this course begins with an overview of the major concepts of cultural anthropology. The areas of study will include the Middle East and Africa with a focus on geography, economics, cultural traditions, historical trends, and contemporary affairs. In the spring semester the course continues the themes. The areas of concentration are East and South Asia.

Course Summary for African and Asian History Honors:
áAfrican 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.á

Grading Policy: á
ááá In grading I use a total point system.áStudents 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 ásee Class Expectations and Policies.á
