I'm trying to expose my 8 and 9 year old to history and decided to move backward each week, since I doubt seriously they are really in any position to understand something like a century, let alone 2000 years ago. Do I even understand 2000 years?
Last week I talked to them about the 00s. I showed them video of 9-11 and the tsunami. Didn't really manage to convey the Great Recession but oh well.
So today's the 90's, trying to get them to understand their lifespan doubled. My first brainstorm came up with:
Clinton, Rwanda, U.S.S. Cole, the first trade center bombing, and the internet.
Then I cheated a little and added Oklahoma City, the first Gulf War, Columbine, Waco, Somalia, and Kosovo.
What to share of these?! I think the internet, Rwanda, and Oklahoma City.
Me, I taught Greek at Asbury, lived in England for three years, Germany one semester, got a doctorate, taught in Sierra Leone for two months, got married, and got a job teaching philosophy at Indiana Wesleyan University, then slipped into the New Testament.
What were you doing in the 90s?
