New Course at the REMC Moodle Hub

REMC_MLO_Logo A new course, World at War, has been added to the REMC MiLearns Online Moodle Hub collection. World at War is designed to be used as a blended learning course. The course was provided by Margaret Lincoln from Lakeview Public Schools (REMC 12E/Calhoun ISD). The course was developed with Scott Durham a Lakeview High School social studies teacher.

The course begins with a detailed examination of World War I and World War II, including studies of Hitler, Stalin, Mussolini, as well as Churchill, Roosevelt, and Truman. Students took a close look at the Holocaust and its implications for the contemporary world. The Cold War, Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, and other milestones of the 20th century were considered.


This is the third course shared at the REMC MiLearns Online Moodle Hub by Margaret Lincoln. The two others are "Hidden Children and the Holocaust: A Lesson and Pledge for Action", and "Holocaust Art and Remembrance".

Thanks goes to Margaret Lincoln, Scott Durham and Melinda Waffle from REMC 12E/Calhoun ISD.
