Honest question to @sendahms and other @mngop & @MinnesotaDFL legislators. If I am teaching the Civil War to 7th graders, how much time should I devote? What key events, people, concepts should I discuss? How should I assess? Remember, I have 50 minute class periods. #mnleg
I'll take it another step further, using the same parameters?
How much time, ... etc. should I devote to the #WWI? Who do I include, exclude? What outside resources can I bring in and which must I avoid? Remember these are 13 year olds and we have 173 school days.
Repeat this for the following:
#RevolutionaryWar
#Warof1812
#MexicanAmericanWar
#IndianWars
#SpanishAmericanWar
#WWI
#WWII
#Vietnam
#KoreanWar
#ColdWar
#GulfWar
#WarInAfghanistan
#WarOnTerror

What battles do we focus on? How do we build context? Outcomes?

Die sprachlich starken & scharfsichtigen, heute tls. aber toxisch wirkenden Reportagen v. #HeinrichHauser (1901-1955) sind wie ein Strudel: Man wird i. d. 1920/30er Jahren eingesaugt & endet in d. Gegenwart. Längerer Thread zu Hauser, #Fleisch & den #Schlachthöfen v. #Chicago. /1
Wie andere Autoren d. #Avantgarde feiert Hauser die Möglichkeiten d. fossilen Zeitalters noch vor d. "great acceleration" nach 1945 (Steffen/Crutzen/McNeill 2007). Es geht nicht bloß um Großstädte, Automobile o. Flugzeuge: 1931 besucht er d. Schlachthöfe v. #Armour & Company /2
in #Chicago. Aus seiner Sicht ist es ein Routinetermin, dessen Notwendigkeit wohl auf Upton #Sinclairs #TheJungle (1906) zurückgeht. Interessant ist, wie bei Hauser d. Zusammenhang v. Industrialisierung, Mechanisierung, steigendem Wohlstand, Fleischkonsum & Rassismus sichtbar /3

Just flabbergasted that @MaxBoot would use "our" #IndianWars as a model for US foreign policy

Why winning and losing are irrelevant in Syria and Afghanistan wapo.st/2G0a4qi?tid=ss…
To start with, the phrase "our Indian Wars, which lasted roughly 300 years (circa 1600-1890)" contains numerous misguided assumptions.
Who is the "we" being referenced in "our Indians Wars"? By selecting a starting date of 1600, near the beginning of European colonization but long before the US ever existed, he can only mean "we white people."
