Global History and Geography Examination: August 2010

Three major faith traditions have shaped world history: Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism. Using secondary sources from textbooks, as well as primary source documents, such as Aztec legends, pupils explore the interplay of these traditions. Additional questions include an essay prompt on nationalism and multiple choice questions with document stems for primary source practice.
