Welcome to Ms. Fayad’s Webpage
Hello Akins Eagles! Welcome to the new school year! I look forward to an exciting year as we go through a wonderful journey through History. I was born and raised in Austin and received my undergraduate degrees from Texas State University. I have been teaching for 25 years.
Course Description: World History focuses on the development of human society from prehistoric to modern times. Emphasis is placed on major events, world leaders, economic and political institutions, technical innovations, and the philosophical and religious beliefs that have guided human behavior and shaped the modern world. Students will use a variety of rich primary and secondary sources including speeches, art, literature, music, and film to learn about events, individuals, and diverse ethnic groups that have shaped world history. The students will also have their research and writing skills as they respond to several teacher-assigned essays and projects.
