(S11.E20.) Final Exam Potential Essay Questions

Final Exam Potential Essay Questions

This podcast focuses only on the potential essay questions for all the units that will be on the final exam. I will followup with individual episodes for each of the units. My comments about the essay questions will be slightly different. The important things about these podcast episodes is that they will feature the voices of students in the class who share their personal overview of the unit and also provide music selections. Additional special podcast episodes will feature music from different countries and also several interviews with people in the Twin Cities area that have personal experiences in history you would find interesting.

Unit 5 Between World War One and World War Two

Many historians argue that World War Two has its roots in the unsatisfactory way World War One ended and also due to the economic competition among the European countries during the High Tide of Imperialism and the Rise of the Industrial Society. Many of the history forces explored during the class are illustrated in this unit.

(S11.E5.) Unit 4 Rise of Russia

Unit 4 Rise of Russia

Karl Marx would have surprised for the first Communist Revolution to occur in one of the most agricultural countries in Europe and Asia. While the res of Europe had gone through both the phases of imperialism and industrial growth, Russia was little changed until the rule by one of the last aristocratic empires run by the Tsars. However, the oppression of classes was just as dramatic. Rather than the industrial middle class and the industrial working class in conflict, instead, it was the few land owners and the majority of serfs and peasants forced to work on the farms. The same disparity between classes along with the devastation of World War One working together to make the people receptive to Marx's ideas. Lenin was an articulate spokesperson and early leader along with Trotsky and Stalin.
