World History I
This student's project explained the trial and error progression of the Egyptian pyramids from the first attempt by Pharaoh Djoser, to the Great Pyramid that is so well known today.
High School U.S. History
This student chose to focus his project on the American Civil War, demonstrating his understanding of how the North and South differed and how politics and ideologies led to the Civil War. We had numerous class discussions identifying the economic, social, and cultural differences between the North and the South. We learned of some of the significant turning points of the war and evaluated how political, military, and diplomatic leadership affected the outcome of the conflict.
Middle School U.S. History
The students in this class are new to Warp & Weft History and this is their first time working with Prezi. They are off to a great start! They both chose topics that focused on colonial era culture, specifically architecture and food. These two aspects of colonial culture were reflective of the social, economic, and political identity of the new nation.
World History III
In this class, students learn about the redefining of European society and culture from 1000-1300 CE, specifically the expansion of Christian Europe after 1000. This project briefly analyzes the causes and consequences of the European Crusades against Syria and Palestine.
African American History
The projects of our African American History students, while different in subject matter, both bear relevance to the African American experience in the United States and are connected to the broader struggle for civil rights and equality. Both slave rebellions and the creation of HBCUs represent forms of resistance against systemic oppression. Slave rebellions sought immediate physical freedom, while HBCUs aimed at long-term intellectual and social empowerment.
