Extra credit blog
This year in Modern World History I feel like I learned a ton. I really enjoyed the format of the class and the way we learned things. I liked making presentations and doing blogs, because it was more refreshing than just memorizing dates and names for tests. This was a better way to learn in my opinion and I will remember the concepts much more. We learned a really wide variety of things about different countries and time periods, which made the class surprisingly interesting. Two main things that I learned that I thought were really fun to learn were the two things I studied in my research papers: German U boats, and nuclear power. I really liked looking deeper into both topics because they were both really fascinating to learn about because they both played larger roles in history than one would think. After a few weeks of deep research I felt like i truly understood each topic deeply which was a really cool feeling to have.
