I finished my second class for the summer semester. It was Western Civilization II: the Wrath of Bostick. (online) I felt pretty good about it since I escaped with a B on the final and therefore an A- overall. Hooray for good grades.
I actually learned quite a bit from this class. The learning I value isn’t the facts of the history presented, but the current application of what is studied. I enjoyed the class because I felt like I could look at history and somehow plug my life into it. It gave me a sense of perspective that I don’t think I had before. It also helped me understand current events more gooder.
My other summer class was Small Group Communication. I also learned a lot from this class. And it was directly applicable to my every day life. Which is just plain cool. There were tons of times where I left this class thinking that they ought to require it for everybody – so we can all see how stupid we are when we communicate and how to do better.
This has been my report on my summer classes.
