Blog assignment due by class time on  Thursday 8/31:


Time cools, time clarifies; no mood can be maintained quite unaltered through the course of hours. – Mark Twain

This time, like all times, is a very good one… if we but know what to do with it. – Ralph Waldo Emerson 

We must use time as a tool, not as a crutch. – John F. Kennedy

As we embark on our study of World History, I would like to pose a question for you to answer – what is time?  More specifically, define the past, present, and future (stay away from the cookie-cutter dictionary definitions please) and tell me how the past and future interrelate to the present.  There is no right or wrong answer here, so no worries….

Some things to ponder as you craft your answer:

  1. How long does the present last?
  2. Are the past or future more or less real than the present?
  3. How do each influence the other, if at all…
