Unit 2

600 CE – 1450 CE

This unit covers a wide variety of concepts from Islamic and West African Empires to the “Dark Ages” in Europe and all the way to the rise of the Mongols and the Samurai. We also do a great deal of cross cultural analysis in this chapter. The sheer amount of information in this chapter makes it relatively difficult to cover while making the type of cross-cultural connections that students should be making. For this reason I have grouped this unit into only 3 chapters, which gives students a bit more ability to see the connections between civilizations that may not be close to each other, but still had an impact on one another.
