Lesson 1.1

A Global Context


Getting familiar with a new classroom is pretty easy. A teacher lays out the expectations and the rules while students listen and ask questions. But once you step outside of that classroom, there are other teachers, other students, other schools, other cities, other states, and other nations. The world outside of the classroom is huge. So big, in fact, that many people, including grown adults, have a difficult time finding important places on a map. During this lesson, you will fully understand the guidelines of this course, get a better idea of what the course will be about, and we will circle up around the map to talk about the world as it was and the world as it is.
