Fairview High School > Scott Peoples's IB World History
Welcome to Scott Peoples' IB World History class page!

Students who enroll in this class must be independent learners capable of using an advanced text, and their academic skills should be above grade level. This is a fast-paced course focusing on political, social, economic, military, ideological, and cultural concepts in world history during the 20th century. The intent of this course is to prepare juniors for the academic and intellectual rigors of senior level IB History of the Americas, as well as for the IB SL World History exam, which will serve as the capstone assessment. In class, the focus will be on writing and historical analysis, utilizing a variety of measures including an IB Internal Assessment research paper. Topics of special focus include the Great War, Spanish Civil War, Second World War, Chinese Civil War, Hitler (Nazi Germany), Stalin (USSR), Mao (China), and a dictator of the class' choosing - either Fidel Castro (Cuba) or Julius Nyerere (Tanzania).

Posted on November 30, 2021

I know it's old and not super-flashy, but if you got something from the "Road to War: Italy" and "Road to War: Germany," you might also dig Road to War: Japan

We won't be watching this one in class, so consider viewing of it to be completely optional (but recommended).

Road to War: Germany

Posted on November 08, 2021

Here’s a documentary about Germany from the same series as the one we watched on Italy – might be a little slow-moving for modern tastes, but since I’m not going to get a chance to show it in class this week, you might want to have a look at it on your own time:

Germany – The Road to War
