Opinion History with Ron
Wednesday, June 3, 2020
Meeting ID: 719 7401 4202
*Look who’s back!! Ron! Did you have a hard time in history class? Was it a mass of memorizing a continuous batch of presidents, kings, and battles that felt meaningless and you forgot all about them very quickly. This course is very different.
First, there are no right answers.
Second, there are only your opinions.
Third, I am the moderator. I do not have an opinion. I want to hear your thoughts and help to sharpen your opinions. All research will be done by you individually. I will not try to sway you by giving you material to study. GOOGLE, GOOGLE, GOOGLE and THINK!
Your assignment is Alaska was called 'Seward’s folly'. Was the United States purchase of Alaska a folly?
