My Students

This is for my Dual Credit US History students. This is a college-level course, which provides students with a college credit upon completion of the course.

As a part of the continued effort to increase the historical literacy of my students, this school year I hope to read a monograph with my Dual Credit class.

A monograph is a deep historical analysis of a topic as opposed to the broad scope of our textbook. The book chosen is Joshua Freeman's book "Behemoth," a deep dive on the history of the massive factories that produce so many of the goods we consume.

These students, by taking this course, have gone above and beyond in their educational pursuits. This course is challenges them to think about events within their historical context as well as how they effect our lives today. Please help them gain valuable perspective not only on factories, but on how good history is written.

My Project

Students often complain that history is boring; and admittedly it can be sometimes. What we find, however, is that often times some of the most simple thoughts and questions can lead to some of the most fascinating and engaging results. The simple premise that drives Josh Freeman's analysis is this: as you look around your home or office, where did most of this "stuff" come from. The answer; massive factories from around the world. But these factories have not always been scattered across the world, and Freeman takes the reader through the genesis of the large scale factory and the fascinating story of how products as large as a car and as small as an iPhone are made. My students will enjoy this novel if the project is funded.
