    The Global Tapestry
    What were some of the biggest stories and developments between 1000 and 1500? What was
    foreshadowing the coming developments of our world as we know it today? This unit will tackle those
    questions and introduce us to the core themes and thinking skills of Modern World History.

    Transitions: The Mongols and Trade Networks
    This unit will take a more specific look at two big topics as we transition toward the coming Modern world.
    Those two topics are the Mongols and the big regional trade networks before 1500.


    The Early Modern Era (1450-1750)
    This is where we truly dive into our study of World History. This unit will discuss the key themes and
    developments of the period 1450-1750, commonly called the Early Modern era. What empires dominated?
    How did trade expand and connect more peoples and societies? What major cultural developments were
    beginning to dramatically change the world?
