Class Experience

Students will trace the events of the 20th and early 21st century.
Students will understand the impacts decolonization had on the world. 
Students will reflect on the optimism of the 21st century after a century of vicious conflict. 
Melissa Quijano has a Master's of Adolescent Social Studies Education and has been teaching for over 5 years. She is extremely passionate about the social sciences and strives to make history relatable to students. She is constantly looking to expand her perspective on historical topics by going to museums all over the world. Melissa frequently teaches about imperialism and colonization and works hard to ensure multiple viewpoints are shared and that the voices of those affected are not silenced. She has studied colonization in Africa and Latin America at the graduate level. She has taken multiple courses about the 20th century at the University level as well. 
There is no formal homework, but I will post discussion questions 1-2 times a month that could include brief resources, such as a histomap. Students will be encouraged to respond to these in any way they prefer. 
There will also be 2 optional exams posted. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss war, terrorism, and genocide in this class. I will not show graphic photographs (such as of dead bodies). I will answer all questions as accurately as possible, though will not volunteer information about torture or sexual abuse (that was prevalent during the Holocaust for example)
Each lesson pulls from a variety of sources. Some include:
- The Encylcopedia Brittanica
- Schulze, H. (1996). Germany: A New History. (D. L. Schneider, Trans.) Munich: C. H. Beck'sche Verlagsbuchhandlung.
- Felix Gilbert's The End of the European Era, 2008
- A Concise History of the Caribbean by Charles Babbage, 2012
- African Perspectives on Colonialism. Baltimore: Johns Hopkins University Press, 1987. Print.
