      These are questions that still remain. Consider that technology has advanced, do you think society should teach the younger generation the difference between digital literacy and digital skills?

    1. They focused on two kinds of students. The “thrivers” were those who did much better in college than their high school grades would have predicted. The “divers” were those who did much worse.

      This is an interesting quote because it shows how personality and traits of a person actually affects the potential of their effort into college courses. A student's personality plays an important role in how they do in college or academics because whether they are enthusiastic or depressed will show in their study habits as well as test scores. When it comes to academics, many people will think it may come natural rather than utilizing the cognitive skills, which is believed to be a skill that applies. However, cognition is an important asset - there is more that contributes into this criteria of education. Although, what draws the line to being fully considered as a thriver student or a diver student. Can someone(a student)be considered both?

      Samuel, explains some factors of ordinary people's lives that has evolved into a new social history.

    2. The dignity of 'ordinary' people could be said to be the unifying theme of this line of historical inquiry and retrieval, a celebration of everyday life, even, perhaps especially, when it involved hardship and suffering.

      Samuel explains that social history involves the study of ordinary people's good and bad aspects of their life.

    3. The new social history

      Historian Raphael Samuel doesn't only give his audience the history of social history by analyzing different time periods and eras but, he also makes it clear to his audience that today there is currently a new social history.

    4. History

      I like how Historian Raphael Samuel defines his definition of history in order for the audience to have an idea of his perspective of social history.

    5. s a pedagogic enthusiasm, and latterly as an academic practice, social history derives its vitality from its oppositional character. It prides itself on being concerned with 'real life' rather than abstractions, with 'ordinary' people rather than privileged elites, with everyday things rather than sensational events

      According to historian Raphael Samuel social history is the study of ordinary people rather than the privileged individuals. Although what is Historian Raphael Samuel's definition of "ordinary"? What draws the line between ordinary and unordinary people in a society?

    1. First, both the industrial and information economy models of education are being imposed on our educational institutions at the same time

      i think it is important for society to know our education system problems in order to solve them. In which the Carnegie Unit is trying to help with the problem of the industrial and informational economy models of education.

    2. American education very well. Created by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching in 1906, it is now the nearly universal accounting unit for colleges and schools. It brought coherence and common standards to the chaotic 19th-century high school and college curriculum, established a measure for judging student academic progress, and set the requirements for high school graduation and college admissio

      I liked how the article provided a background history and information of the Carnegie Unit(credit hour). I think having a short summary paragraph of the history helps the audience have a better understanding because I was familiar with credit hour but i never fully understand the situation.

    1. This assumption presumes wrongly, first, that knowledge and skills can be disaggregated, and second, that the acquisition of knowledge through intellectual inquiry, the very purpose of the college or university as an academic institution, is worthless.

      This quote is interesting because it provides information of how people perceive education differently. In one hand we have people that think education is a waste of time and money while in the other hand we have people that think the opposite of that and don't not see education as worthless. In my perspective I wonder if the article is referring to private universities or public universities, although you have to pay for both there is a difference within the two when it comes to tuition. In which do people see all universities in general as a waste of money or private universities as a waste of money because you can get the same education at a lower price elsewhere.

    1. Du Bois would have none of this. For, unlike Park, Du Bois’ thinking on race was rooted not only in his personal experience as an African-American but also in actual empirical research.

      As a empirical researcher I wonder if it was difficult for Du Bois to analyze from his own experience?

    2. There is no doubt that naked racism played a role in the marginalization of Du Bois.

      This sentence in particular struck me because it provides an true statement how our identity impacts and influences our actions and decisions.
