3.5 & 3.6 Positive Communism

Are there any positives to 20thC Communism?  There have been various interpretations/versions of the Marx/Engels philosophy.  What has worked?  What is possible, but suffered from poor implementation or management?  If nothing, simply spew forth Ayn Rand quotes.

3.EC1 Labor

Which type of intensive labor you would prefer to carry out during your lifetime: physical or mental?

3.3 & 3.4 Nietzsche

Friedrich Nietzsche once stated, "There are no facts, only interpretations."  Apply this to your historical research.  What is more important...the facts of what happened or the interpretations of those facts (and how they not only affected those at the time, but continue to affect us through today)?

3.1 & 3.2 History

What is the purpose of History?  Why study it?  But we should also look into HOW it is studied.  What should be explored?  basically, look into the study of history and how it fits within a society's educational standards.  Consider your History IA, but also reflect on ALL of your previous history classes & lessons.  What proved useful and rewarding?  What was pointless?  Are there any components that proved useful upon further reflection?

2.EC2 Absolutes vs Scales

Is partial credit deserved? Basically, should everything be Yes-No, Good-Bad, or Pass-Fail?  We offer a grading spectrum of A-B-C-D-F.  You even earn "points out of a possible X amount" for regular assignments.  Is this gray area just a confusing band-aid to hide hurt feelings?

2.6 One vs Many

Which is more important - the individual or the group?
