Course Description:

The Three Kingdoms period is an excellent case study in comparing virtue against vice, benevolence against brutality, mercy against cruelty, intelligence against stupidity, and wisdom against foolishness. Students taking this course will explore the importance of personality in politics and governance — and therefore in history. We will study the key individuals and events of the time, allowing students to practice the critical thinking skills and examination of cause and effect and other connections as required in their history courses. In addition, students will conclude the course with an essay to compile and analyze the information they have learned.
