My sure favorite thing is most certificously (???)[Just an adjectivized adverb] the soapbox speaches. I like how, unlike many other classes, we have the right and responsibility ( and forcedness)to actually express our personal opinions on a controversial, or non-controversial, issue of our choice that we have passion about without getting criticized in a way that we feel might shine some shadows (oxymoron) on our opinion until we sit down.

I really like everything! I love how we roleplay things out to better demonstrate how things happened in the past.

I think that all of the simulations we do in class are really fun. My favorite is the one where we were all subjects in the kingdom. I also liked all of the other ones. They make class really fun and not as dry as some of my other classes. I always remember what we do in the simulations better for tests and stuff.

My Favorite thing that we've done in class so far is either the assembly line simulation like Kari said, or making cards and blankets for the veterans on Veteran's Day. I also like Thursdays when we do current events, and Fridays when we do candy quizes!
Go Candy! LOL!

My favorite thing that we did in class this year is when we did the assembly line thing with the portraits!! I liked it because we got to 1)draw (which is my favorite!), and 2)that we got to see that it took a lot to get "in the groove" of working together!!

I also like seeing all of the funny pics in the end!!!

I have to agree with amy. I liked the kingdom thing. It might have been because I was the ROYAL COURT!!!!!!(heeheeheeheehee!!!) I also liked making the blankets for the vetrains. I like to do things for others.

History Quotes

We can learn from history how past generations thought and acted, how they responded to the demands of their time and how they solved their problems. We can learn by analogy, not by example, for our circumstances will always be different than theirs were. The main thing history can teach us is that human actions have consequences and that certain choices, once made, cannot be undone. They foreclose the possibility of making other choices and thus they determine future events.
-Gerda Lerner

History, we can confidently assert, is useful in the sense that art and music, poetry and flowers, religion and philosophy are useful. Without it -- as with these -- life would be poorer and meaner; without it we should be denied some of those intellectual and moral experiences which give meaning and richness to life. Surely it is no accident that the study of history has been the solace of many of the noblest minds of every generation.
-Henry Steele Commager

Few will have the greatness to bend history itself; but each of us can work to change a small portion of events, and in the total of all those acts will be written the history of this generation.
-Robert F. Kennedy
