As a history and geography teacher, I have often seen the difficulties that some students may experience with the articulation of these two subjects.
For them history is seen as “the science of the past” while geography is “the science of the land and the countries”.
These inaccuracies, understandable and shared, including in academic debates, reveal the complexity and richness of two disciplines with considerable stakes.
How can history as a science of time fit in with that of space, geography?
This question is at the heart of my program and my discipline.
Under the mention, individuals and societies , this allows flexibility and transdisciplinarity to discuss various subjects through oral and written presentations.

The program set up by the IB (International Baccalaureate) allows them to articulate history and geography as two human sciences in order to better reflect the complexity of societies and the wealth of civilizations in order to shed light on the present thanks to the past.
In the first levels (year 1 of the MYP), it is above all a question of giving an account of the Roman heritage through the same territory: the Mediterranean or the MARE NOSTRUM as the Latins called it. This Sea was a fertile space for the creation of a collective identity.
This feeling of belonging to the same community was challenged in medieval times with the Muslim conquest. This rupture allowed the emergence of a new fighter and moral figure: that of the knight, studied by the students of year 2 of MYP in the feudal Christian world.
It was this separation established between Christians and Muslims that forced the Spaniards in the 15th century to explore other territories, made possible by scientific progress . This question is explored by MYP 5 students, with an introduction to the history of science .
From these discoveries, exchanges and conflicts arose, to such an extent that it is possible to speak of the first “ globalization “. This term was developed with the students of PEI 3 by mixing both history and geography to account for a contemporary phenomenon, the sources of which date back for the oldest to the 17th and 18th centuries .
