This class will cover the life of Abraham Lincoln. A figure who in many ways has reached mythical status, his trajectory was an intriguing one. Mostly research and discussion-centered, students will review aspects of his life, and discuss the parts they find more intriguing, and why he is such a pivotal, even mythical figure in history. Students will interact with each other a lot, using slides, online discussion forums (eg. Mentimeter), and common discussion dynamics. No previous experience...
Students will gain a deeper understanding of a figure heavily discussed in schools, media, etc.
I have studied history for years, especially Abraham Lincoln.
There will be no homework assigned.
Informal assessment throughout (contributions on Google Docs, Mentimeter, etc.).
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
There will be discussions of assassination and mental health struggles.
We will refer to the Gettysburg Address (found online), as well as YouTube and online vetted sites for more biographical information. These will include (presented via Google Slides): https://www.thoughtco.com/abe-lincoln-and-his-ax-reality-behind-the-legend-1773585 https://www.legendsofamerica.com/ah-abrahamlincoln/ https://www.whitehouse.gov/about-the-white-house/presidents/abraham-lincoln/ Legends of Lincoln: Tall Tales & Legends of The Life & Times of Abraham Lincoln Paperback – July 4, 2019 by Michael John Joseph Del Toro
