Theme:  Turning Points

Turning points are major events in history that have led to lasting change.


Identify two turning points from global history and for each:
• Describe the historical circumstances
• Explain how each turning point changed the course of history

      You may use any example from your study of global history. Some suggestions you might wish to consider include the Neolithic Revolution, the Crusades, the Renaissance, the Encounter, the French Revolution, the Russian Revolution of 1917, World War I, creation of the modern state of Israel, Nelson Mandela elected president of South Africa, and the fall of the Berlin Wall.

You are not limited to these suggestions.
