Cooperative World History offers students the opportunity to study the past with their classmates through an inquiry approach. Choose a historical theme (1st semester) or essential question (2nd semester) as your “lens” through which to focus your study of the past. Explore the past through primary and secondary sources that your instructor provides and that you find to answer questions you have about the past. Learn from and with your peers as you converse via comments about the sources and how they can be interpreted. Learn how historians construct meaning from the past by studying sources and artifacts.
World History is taught by Christine Hitchock. She is the winner of the 2016-17 Jacobs Educator award from the IU School of Education. Teachers from across the United States apply for this award.
IUHS Accreditation Report
As part of its accreditation with AdvancED, Indiana University High School was visited by an External Review Team in March 2014. The team met with staff, teachers, parents, and students as part of the review. Based on their visit and the data they collected the External Review Team recommended that IUHS be accredited by the AdvancED Accreditation Commission for an additional five-year term.
High school students who qualified for the 21st Century Scholars Program before entering high school and who are earning an IUHS diploma can still qualify for the scholarship if they decide to attend college in Indiana.
Indiana University High School is approved under the new NCAA initial eligibility guidelines as established by the NCAA in Division I Proposal No. 2009-64.
