Founders of Nations: Ongoing

Matthew Grace, M.Ed
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(321)
In this ongoing class students will learn about different nations founders and how they affect the nation today.

Class experience

Students will know more about a foundational person and story from each of the listed nations.
Students will practice how to glean useful tips for life from historical people and events.
I produce a podcast "Founders of Nations" which is the podcast version of this classes material. 15-20 hours were spent on interviews, research and study to make the information and plan for each nation.

I have a Master's Degree in Education and have been a history buff since I was in Middle School. I have been teaching and tutoring since 2004 and love to help students broaden their horizons by learning about different nations and cultures around the world.
Students will only need something to take notes with so they can think about the question and write notes about their answers.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Many of the founding stories of countries are bloody. This class will not be filled with gore or graphic details but it will talk about war a lot.
Interviews with done with multiply people from each of the nations and those interviews will be used as part of the work. Interviews were also done with historians about each country anywhere that they were available.

The following books were used for research on the nations.

A.K. Brackob - Scanderbeg: A History of George Castriota and the Albanian Resistance to Islamic Expansion in Fifteenth Century Europe
John Lynch - San Martin: Argentine Soldier, American Hero Argentine Soldier, American Hero
Alistair Horne - A Savage War of Peace: Algeria 1954-1962
