As I mentioned before one of the things I like to do is give students their Final Exam topic so they can work on it as we go along in the term if they so desire.
Topic: How have you used the historical lessons we have covered in class to make yourself and those around you better? How have you used the lessons to impact your friends, family, and/or community?
You will need to identify at least 3 specific lessons and their real-world application. The 3 must come from different periods: one from each of the following, Modules 1-5, Modules 6-9, and Modules 10-14. So in each section you need to identify a lesson you have learned, explore the historical context of that lesson, and explore the ways in which that lesson has helped you grow as a person.
Please note that the application isn’t what you have done previously in your life or what you will do in the future but rather what you have done during the time of this class. I want this class to embolden you to act, to fulfill its purpose.
You can submit the final exam in one of several different formats. Of course you can write a paper. But you may also choose to present a powerpoint presentation (with your audio commentary) or even a video lecture. I’m basically open as to how you want to present it and we will talk about that in your journal forum.
