"This Year in MWH I..."

learned a lot. I really enjoyed the blog and the new ways we were sort of learning. We sort of had to teach a lot of information and sort be able to explain it rather than just regurgitate it on tests. I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this period of history, I guess it just felt more relevant to the world we live in now or something. I just had more fun learning and I was actually interested in what we were learning. I am really surprised at how quickly it went by. This class has definitely taught me how to make connections with history, how to use articles and facts to strengthen my arguments in my writing. I'm definitely gonna miss our class next year. Ms. Xia you should teach RUSH and APUSH next year!


  1. Yea I agree that the blog system definitely made this class unique. The blog was a great place to before tests. Writing the blog required some research, so our research skills increased a ton with the blog system.

  2. I agree. It was hard to connect and relate to a lot of earlier history because it didn't have as much of a direct impact on our families' lives. Many of our own grandparents, for example, lived through World Wars. We can understand, and are naturally curious to learn about what is going on in the world around us. Modern World History truly fostered this curiousity.
