History is not just important as a series of past events; it is a lens through which we can understand the current events of today. Even though the events covered in this class happened centuries ago in some cases, they are still relevant in today’s social, economic, and political discussions. Using the news, online articles, newspapers, or other forms of current information, find and discuss a current issue that is influenced by the history within the scope of this class. For example, how is the Great Depression discussed today in relation to the current economic problems? How is immigration discussed today compared to past immigration issues? How do political candidates use past political figures to bolster their arguments? Once you have selected the topic, explain how it is related to or influenced by history. Have we misinterpreted history or is the current reference an accurate reflection of the past? Is there some event or issue today that now makes more sense to you once you know the history behind it?
