Modern World History

“Great learning and superior abilities, should you ever possess them, will be of little value and small estimation unless virtue, honor, truth and integrity are added to them.”
                                                                                 Abigail Adams to her son, John Quincy Adams, 
                                                                                                                             later sixth President of the United States


The intent of this course is to live up to the ideals instilled in a remarkable young man by his equally extraordinary mother almost 250 years ago.   Our goals are three-fold.  First, it is hoped that this course will help students prepare for the academic rigors of post-secondary work.   As much as possible, you will be treated like college students and held to similar standards that college students are held to.    

Secondly, we hope to imbue all students with the knowledge of the past.  This is no simple task given our time constraints.  Students will be expected to work independently on assignments, to come to class prepared, and must participate in group discussions.   In the course of our study of modern world history, students will practice the ‘historian's craft’ for the purpose of developing their own interpretation of past events.   This means they will examine cause/effect relationships, analyze primary and secondary source documents, weigh the importance of pertinent facts, and evaluate the work of other historians in order to pose and defend their own historical hypotheses.    Who were the seminal individuals who have most influenced the modern world?  How and why were they able to do so?  Which events were most important?  What themes are most accurate in attempting to portray or interpret current world affairs?     

As you complete the requirements for this course, you’ll be expected to catalog the material that has been given to you (and the material that you produce) and comment on that material’s contribution to y0ur own view of history.  This course is, ultimately, about you – how you internalize history, how you make sense of information, how you use your knowledge of historical events to arrive at an understanding of how history shapes our lives today.

Our third goal is to learn how the study of the past can be used to make our lives better today.  The great ancient historians – Herodotus, Thucydides, Tacitus, Plutarch, Suetonious and others – viewed the study of the past as the primary means by which individuals could improve society.   It’s equally obvious that Abigail Adams had a similar goal in mind when she homeschooled her son in this vital subject.
