After receiving the marks, the exam found that 52% of the students had chosen Nazi Germany, Imperial Japan or Fascist Italy as our allies during World War II instead of the Soviet Union. This type of mistake is inexcusable! The internet allows children to have an open ended gate to miraculous knowledge.

If the course is so difficult for the teacher or educator then imagine how difficult it is for the student. David Christian’s, This Fleeting World: A Short History of Humanity, is profitable for the everyday AP world teacher and student because Christian puts a big picture in little words and explains it with the everyday world history teacher and student in mind. Christian only used 100 pages to explain the history of humankind, which makes it easier for teachers, educators, and students to revert back to the book multiple times during the school year. Also, because, This Fleeting World: A Short History of Humanity, was written with the everyday world history teacher and student in mind, it makes it an easy tool in the classroom, as was David Christian’s goal for the book. For a student who has to focus on so many things such as, basketball, soccer, marching band, and other classes, This Fleeting World: A Short History of Humanity, makes it not only easier but also less stressful to learn world

Although I faced many adversities when I failed to place in many of the competitions, I refused to let my failures faze me. In 8th grade, my efforts paid off in the VFW Essay Contest, where participants wrote short essays based on the theme: “What Freedom Means to Me”. Being an Asian-American girl with both parents who emigrated from China to the United States, I had a clear understanding of how precious freedom is. Freedom meant the opportunity to be myself and the ability to do what I love, a luxury not everyone has. When I placed first in my school, county, and district, I was pleasantly surprised.
