I plan to major in economics based largely on the strength of this course. I also applied for a full-tuition + yearly stipend academic scholarship in economics at a top university... [and] I ended up getting the scholarship. Before my senior year, my knowledge of economics pretty much went as far as a rudimentary understanding of supply and demand.

Historical Heads using Glogster - Students choose a historical figure to research and then create a Glogster which showcases key information about that figure. They summarize their research around the ‘senses’ of that figure - what they would have seen, heard, smelled, said, and touched during the time period in which they lived. Glogster allows students to include images, video and music files in the presentation of their research. This is a fun way for students to present research on historical figures of World History and share it with the class!
