I am pleased to announce the results of the vote for the topics we will study in the HL class this coming academic year. Topic 5 received 14 votes, topic 3 received 13 votes, and topic 9 received 9 votes. In the vote for the alternate topic, topic 6 received 6 votes. Therefore, next year’s curriculum will be as follows:
I. United States Civil War: causes, course and effects 1840-77 (1st-2nd nine weeks)
II. Emergence of the Americas in Global Affairs 1880-1929 (2nd nine weeks)
III. Political developments in the Americas after the Second World War 1945-79 (3rd nine weeks)
IV. The Mexican Revolution (3rd-4th nine weeks)
I am really looking forward to teaching these topics, and I think we will see a great deal of good reading and a high level of discussion next year.
