I’ve moved!

New link to Ms. Shea’s site

As part of LHS’s increased integration of Google’s suite of tools, I’ve moved my website. As an added bonus, you won’t have to see any ads as you check out what’s happening in history class!

The new address is: https://sites.google.com/lexingtonma.org/shea-world-history

Welcome to World History!

During this year, I hope you learn a lot about the world before 1600, as well as the world we live in now. Most of all, I hope you will learn a lot about yourself as a student, a thinker, and a writer.

This website can help you to plan ahead. At the beginning of each unit I post a calendar of assignments, including test dates (which get updated if the plan changes). I also use Google Classroom to post details about what we’re doing and to provide electronic copies of assignments.

Hopefully, over the summer you had a chance to read a book about a leader. (The summer reading assignment is posted on the Social Studies tab under Academics on the LHS website.)

Leadership is just one of the key ideas that applies to both the past and present that we’ll explore over the course of the year. The four main questions we’ll focus on this year are:
• how do leaders gain and maintain legitimacy?
• what changes as a result of technological and intellectual innovations?
• how do trade networks change societies?
• how do religion & philosophy influence society?

I’m looking forward to getting to know the LHS Class of 2022!
