20th Topic Selections

As with most topics, they change frequently, or more gems are discovered. Therefore, they are housed in one location here on my site rather than on the class platform. Please message me if you see a topic or keyword we should add. 

Welcome to your Topic Selections Resources page. Students can use this as a springboard for a topic for their in-person presentations.

Also, you can view this document from previous students concerning Turning Points in the 20th Century. These topics are from student suggestions and course materials.
