Begin by introducing yourself and tell us a little bit about your experiences (if any)
with online learning.
Then consider why do you think people study history? (Don’t be trite here – it’s
much more than “to learn from their mistakes”). Consider why you are required to
study history to earn an AA or AS degree. Do you think the study of history helps
you to be a better person or contribute to society? If so, how so? If not, why not?
To help you formulate an answer as to why history is important, consider the
arguments made by Steven Kreis at the History Guide: Why Study History? and
Peter Stearns’ argument published by the American Historical Association: Why
Study History? (1998). Do you agree or disagree with these scholars and why?
Finally, there is much confusion on how to study history as well. History is
primarily examined through the study of documents. Review “How to Study
History” in your reading, then select one primary and one secondary source
related to our course content. Include those sources properly formatted in one of
the approved styles and explain how a historian might use these sources.
