History, for me, is all about the HUMAN EXPERIENCE. I want to know who sparked these events, how they were effected, how others were effected, and how we, in the 21st century, are still effected by their decisions and actions.
This week’s materials are all about revealing the human experience, the sufferings at the hands of others, and how, when possible, they helped each other survive and thrive.
1) Create a conversation starter with your fellow students.
2) Pose questions that can lead to further discussions.
Remember, do not treat these discussions as a worksheet. Your initial posting answered the questions in isolation instead of using them as inspiration to create a conversation starter. I should see the connections in your thoughts.!!!
