Little Big History Project BY: Abraham Steinbeck

School supplies

My project is about school. I chose school because I have always been interested in how it started and why. Another reason why is because one of my interests is what would the world be like without school or a form of education. School is important to the global society because without school students and kids will be clueless about our world. School teaches kids to know what to do in certain circumstances and in certain environments including their future jobs. Without school the human race will fall apart and crumble down. School teaches kids to be ready for the future and to keep the human race moving onward.

School building

The goldilock's conditions while the system of education of school was being made happened when just enough people (adults) voted for their children's education to be made public. This act was then made into a law that everyone's children must be educated. Slowly school started to develop more and more. This is an example of increasing complexity. Adults and towns from all over started investing more and more into their towns schools. Because of this, the schools were made better and had better materials for their children. Their children then because they were learning better grew smarter and invented new things. Collective learning happens when teachers learn over time what materials need to be taught the most. Another thing is that the teachers learn smarter and better ways to teach their students using advance technologies.

Big history thresholds

School made major advancements on the Earth. The start of school happened at threshold 5. Life on Earth made it possible for humans to grow and spread throughout the world. This is important because with the humans population growing a form of education had to be put down in order to teach the youngsters. Threshold 6 collective learning. After humans started to replenish around the world they started to learn new things. Theses things were different languages, techniques to cook, eat food. Humans then learned new ways to make buildings and weapons. Threshold 7 is agriculture. Agriculture helped humans grow better crops which helped grow the minds of children and set up for excellent schools and education programs. Threshold 8, the modern revolution. With all of the new crops and agriculture the humans get promoted and start commercialization and innovation. All of this allows humans to build bigger and better schools with better materials to teach their students.

Economics and Anthropology

Using the approach of an anthropologist he would see the history of school this way. He would look at all of the different types of cultures and human societies went into making a proper school. An economics person would see this in the history of school. He would see the production that it creates and its productivity. He will also see the transfer of wealth and region or group that regards the material prosperity.

China and America

China at around 500 AD. They started first learning about religions until further technologies came to them so they could learn how to write, read and paint. This formed the first schools which carried over to the US.The society that I picked was where school originated from. That place is called Boston in the US. Boston hosted the first public latin school in 1635. By the 19th century public secondary schools began to outnumber private schools.
