Two authors of the Bohrium Bloggers team have YouTube accounts with regularly updated content,so I thought I(Tyler) might make a blog post linking to both. My YouTube channel contains videos from my everyday life,the most recent videos are from my trip in Florida.London’s YouTube channels are LegoJulio,and LegendOfOlwood.The latter contains trailers,previews,etc. for his upcoming movie,The Legend Of Olwood.LegoJulio is his account where he posts Lego related videos.
Here is a basic overview: students receive notebooks and fill them out. Students receive an alternate textbook and complete P.E.G.S. (Political, Economic, Geographic, Social) factors for each section in the textbook. Other classes complete engaging projects and a variety of learning techniques. I’ll save my criticism of this for later.
I have also noticed a bias in history class. I believe that students are being indoctrinated into feeling a sense of patriotism by learning about the Revolutionary War. Even the worksheets that are handed out contribute to this. For example, there was a Freedom week worksheet where FREEDOM was an acronym for various events and documents.
What do you think about US history classes? Any questions and comments are welcome!
