Social 20: First PowerPoints

In Social 20 we’ve earnestly began our examinations of nationalism.

We’ve learned the key terms — differentiating nation from state, for instance, and patriotism from nationalism — and also explored various understandings of nationhood, such as linguistic or geographic.

More than this, we’ve learned two big ideas:

  1. There are two broad types of nationalism: Ethnic, based on one’s culture/race/language/etc; and Civic, based on a shared commitment to the law of the land.
  2. Every nation has a story to tell whether Ethnic or Civic. That story varies wildly but it leaves a lasting impact for generations.
