Global Cultural History is the core of the Ross Spiral Curriculum. It is constructed as a narrative that charts the evolution of human consciousness.
The Spiral refers to the conceptual framework and architecture of the interdisciplinary curriculum taught chronologically and thematically through the grades at Ross School.
The student is educationally situated at the center of this expanding form.
This vantage point allows multiple simultaneous and comparative views of the past and present, enabling students to apply their learning to future trends and possibilities.
This narrative is taught chronologically through the grades and depicts world cultural history as a dynamic system expanding in complexity. Teaching cultural history in this way allows students to recognize patterns across cultures and eras, fostering intercultural understanding.
