Assignment Instructions

 Consider why do you think people study history? (Don’t be trite here – it’s much more than “to learn from their mistakes”). Consider why you are required to study history to earn an AA or AS degree. Do you think the study of history helps you to be a better person or contribute to society? If so, how so? If not, why not?
To help you formulate an answer as to why history is important, consider the arguments made by Steven Kreis at the History Guide: Why Study History? and Peter Stearns’ argument published by the American Historical Association: Why Study History? (1998). Do you agree or disagree with these scholars and why?
Review the Explorations “How to Study History” and “How to Do Research in History”, then select one primary and one secondary source related to our course content.

peer 1 discussion:  
hello everyone
I’m new to online schooling and I wish to share nothing else about myself.
Why do I study history? As Steven Kreis said in why he studies/ teaches history “For me its a form of selfishness. I wish to improve myself. And by improving myself, I also improve others.” In my own words I study history because I enjoy learning about my ancestors and other cultures from different time periods.
How does history affect our present society? The study of history helps teach us skills such as researching, and evaluating different interpretations of sources.

Peer 2:  
Hi! My name is Kylee and I am a student at Front Range, I am working on getting my associates of science degree and I plan on transferring to CSU to study botany and wildlife biology. I haven’t had much experience with online classes except for the end of the spring 2020 school year during the pandemic. This is my first semester back after a gap year and I do like online classes but it is challenging with how much reading there is in such a short time frame. 
I think people study history for the knowledge. In a lot of arguments, people speculate that history is studied to avoid mistakes but not all of the mistakes made are bad. In early society people passed down knowledge to help people avoid injury and death, this knowledge helped develop societies and change the way people used the world around them. There is the knowledge of culture, technological advances, and changing societies that all impact the world and each person that lived in that time. I do agree with Kreis’s argument for why to study history that it is philosophical, if we look back to the socratic period when early philosophers were studying why things mattered or existed there was the idea that everything came from past knowledge passed down and teaching others about different knowledge to help survival and open up others eyes to see more than their own opinion.
My primary source from this module is a document from Mesopotamia, The code of Hammurabi from the King of Babylon. This is an Archeological report that can be used as a primary source since it was a document straight from the era. 
A secondary source is an article describing the big picture of what happened during the Neo-Babylonian era. This is a secondary source because it is using primary sources to briefly explain what happened during the Empire.
