Global History and Geography Examination: August 2011

The Mongols, Spanish, and Ottomans all rewrote history with their conquest and control of empires. Yet, each made its mark differently. Using a variety of secondary and primary sources, pupils consider the similarities and differences between these civilizations. An additional prompt asks scholars to propose solutions to world problems, and multiple choice questions allow for authentic test practice.
