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.

Concept Map of the Transformation of Western Europe 1450 - 1750. During this time period several significant events changes the landscape of Western Europe and would spur on future changes in World History. Students analyze the Renaissance, Reformation, Scientific Revolution, Enlightenment and Age of Exploration. In doing so they create a concept map drawing connections and relationships between these events. Students can use bubbl.us to create the concept map online or do one by hand. This is a great way for students to put together all of the information they are learning and make it ‘make sense’! (While this is very small - to capture this student's great work!- the free online software allows you to zoom in and navigate through the map.)
