There was not much topical connection amongst the classes this week, yet there was the general ideas of sexism and racism in the country. I believe having the history class might make it easier to make fundamental connections in all the classes, considering our Literature class moves in chronological order, as well as some parts of the government class. While each class kind of took its own direction this past week, I agree with Sam that it wasn’t a bad thing. For example, I think analyzing different time periods of racial relations, Abigail mentioned, helps students better understand the events that occurred and why people did the things they did/felt. Having classes that take on different perspectives for similar problems can help accomplish this.
