Since he proved how big the world really was, we can now estimate our trips in today’s world We soon figured out the circumference of the Earth. Lastly, “Technology helped Christopher Columbus and his crew go across the ocean (Columbus).” People used technology in the past, but not like we use it today. If he didn’t use technology and show how useful it was maybe we wouldn’t have it today. This is important to history because his technology helped us create our technology
Why was the Panama Canal built? There were several reasons why the Canal was decided to be built the first reason was because the people building it wanted to improve the world, but many people just wanted to make travel easier. For example, you could cut the time in half from getting ocean to ocean. That is why it was built. When building the canal there were many struggles.
Truths can be tightly veiled, but it is books like David Hackett Fischer’s Paul Revere's Ride that expounds on the events untold and on the events largely distorted. Fisher immerses his readers into a time in history seldom depicted accurately. He gives the readers an authentic look into Paul Revere’s life, his journey and his persona. Fisher also provides his readers with a new prescriptive on our country’s desire for filiopietistic history. It is a topic rarely discussed, but after reading Fisher’s book, readers will feel a desire to journey on a quest for all truths in history.
Fahrenheit 451 by Ray Bradbury captivated our minds by showing us how important literature is. Literature stretches our minds and provokes thought within us. In Fahrenheit 451, Professor Faber mentions three things that apply to books but also to our lives. These three things being quality, leisure, and the right to carry out actions from what we learn. While these things are related to books, they should be in our life as well.
In the eyes of the Panamanians, this was militarily helpful. American presence during the Panamanian Revolution showed the Panamanians that the US was reliable and convinced them to allow the building of the Panama Canal. The construction of the canal and the years it took to get there show that Roosevelt did not use the approach of others. He formed his own opinions on the matters of how foreign affairs should be handled, rather than just following in the footsteps of those before him. His use of other countries’ matters of contention in order to put the United States in a position of power had rarely been used before and its repercussions proved to be effective.
Prior to taking POLS 1101, I had already obtained much knowledge about America under British rule, and the struggle that led us to become the independent country we are today. What I did not know is our current government structure and the processes and systems of our government. I also learned more about the Electoral College, the United States Supreme Court, the Nuclear Deal, and Britain’s “question time.” I enjoyed participating in these discussions, because each post required research, exploration, and consideration before meaningful dialogue; it requires students to analyze textbooks, the media, and much more, leading to one gaining a well rounded knowledge on a subject. I have also enjoyed the opportunity to read what my peers had to say on the exact same question, comparing and contrasting our answers and opinions. Two of my favorite trips that we, as a class have taken this semester were: the trip to Congress and the trip to the land of interest groups.
The industrial revolution woke up the sense of humanity in people, yet at the same time It turned it off. To begin with, from the year 1819 through 1901, Great Britain was beginning to face an all new era called the Victorian Era. In fact, this era was named like that, because of queen Victoria. Also, this era was very important because it introduced medical advances, scientific knowledge, and technological knowledge that helped increase work efficiency. However, not all the things that occurred were great.
The Ministry of Education demands schools to include in their curriculum a class that will extend knowledge on the country’s history; this subject is known as Honduran history. Unfortunately, in many institutions this class is considered absurd and unnecessary. Yet, it provides fundamental insight on Honduras’s colonial period, the fight for independence, the annexation to Mexico, among other events. Instead, schools prioritize history courses from other countries. Disappointingly, a student is more likely to know about an American founding father than Francisco Morazán’s political reforms during his Central American presidency and his dream of unifying Central American countries.
In conclusion, Nikola Tesla was very influential in life. He had a great skill to work alone, he was a big part of life and making electricity more able to handle, and he was great and successful being able to handle electricity and the obstacles life gave him. If you knew about the struggles of handling electricity or even starting it at that early age of America and know Thomas Edison’s impact, then you would know and feel how important Nikola Tesla really
Another observation I made after reviewing my graded essays was the lack of use, or placement of keywords throughout the paper. While I supported the points in the paper some of the words used lacked definition making the sentence sound a little awkward. Additionally, the common error that requires constant diligence from me when reviewing my papers is the comma splice. There has been at least one comma splice error in every paper I have written this semester. The errors are subsequently fewer per paper, but I still need to continue to work on grammar and
I have learned many skills that are required when studying history. That of which include: analyzing sources, displaying multiple points of views on the same topic, and researching a justified conclusion. By doing so I have become aware of the challenges faced by historians in formulating analysis and drawing relevant
This week’s topic on the Jefferson hour is about literacy and my thoughts on this is that I believe less people are literature than there was during Thomas Jefferson time. Different forms of literacy help us discover information and events from the past. When we read documents, diaries, or such related writings we can see how much are writing styles and vocabulary change since then. I think it is important to keep an oral tradition because writings can be lost and oral stories are always retold and remember. Even though oral traditions may not be credible stories than it would be in a book, oral traditions help people come to together, show their originality and keep the tradition ongoing.
Since the younger generation of America is the one that most needs to be educated in civics, this could be threatening because they can 't run a country while simultaneously knowing nothing about it. Furthermore, most Americans in general care more about their personal lives than what 's happening in their country. The article claims, "we stopped engaging with one another as a civilized society".
To analyze means to understand on a level deeper than the surface I picked the individuality vs conformity prompt because I felt like it was the most prevalent one throughout the book and it was really interesting to me. To write this artifact I first had to read and annotate
In many chapters, I found myself not being able to retain his information just because his evidence was sometimes so overbearing and made it impossible to retain it all. It was hard for me to grasp the book, not saying that it should be dumbed down by any means but that I needed to be more educated on World War II and about life of a veteran to have common base to build on. But his paragraphs did string together the information very well in a way where it helped me guess as to what was happening even if I did not understand all the terms or style of writing. Overall, I do not believe the book got straight to the point and that it was packed with so many clips of information that it left me scattered brained as I read. But I am no expert in this section of historical events and I could be completely wrong with my interpretation.
