In the class World History, we learn about historic events all around the globe. We learn from an online course called “Edgenuity” where we watch videos with instructions and lessons which help us understand the topic. Knowing important historical events is fundamental knowledge that helps us understand the past and predict the future. According to Enotes, “Studying history gives us wide opportunities to get a better understanding of our past experiences to count on the great achievements and avoid the horrific mistakes.”
Edgenuity is a free online educational course which includes a variety of subjects to learn. The experience is much like using a textbook, except that instead of burdensome reading, you listen to an instructor who explains the topic using a powerpoint. To make sure my grade in World History wasn't slipping, I made sure to always stay on track with my lessons. Falling behind your work can significantly drop your grade and makes it very challenging to pick yourself back up. I also made sure to take detailed and informative notes that helped me remember the material and raised up my test score.
Two of the most important things I have learned are learning about fundamental events that have happened in the past and how to take notes that help me learn. This skill will help me later in the future, such as college where I will need to take a lot of notes to remember all the new material.
