This is the course where everything you have learned in History and Socials comes together! BUILD A CULTURAL PROTOTYPE FOR THE YEAR 3,000, based on the cultures presented in this course. Comparative Cultures 12 presents, compares and discusses various cultures: France, Rome-Italy, Germany, Russia, India, China and Japan. We will investigate these cultures’ origins and historical evolution, religions, customs and arts, their music and cinema and their current influences on the world. The presentations of each culture will use ample video and audio examples, as well as a representative film for each. All along this course, students will be involved in research, discussions, and debates in order to CREATE A NEW FUTURE CIVILIZATION, resulted from a symbiosis of the previous ones. * FRIM students must take Histoire 12 or Cultures Comparées 12 either in grade 11 or 12.
