Exeter-Milligan Update: Social Science Classes

Mr. Brian Murphy’s Social Science Classes at Exeter-Milligan have been covering a wide variety of topics this semester.  Currently, the Post World War II History class is just getting started with a unit covering the 1980s.  The class spends a great deal of time discussing current events and how earlier events have influenced our world today.  Post World War II History looks at events from both world and American perspectives.  The American History class recently completed a chapter on the early Cold War.  We are now starting a unit on 1950s culture.  World History is just completing World War I.  During class discussions, an emphasis is placed on perspectives of other nations and how these influence major events that follow.
