This course uses the lives, ideals and achievements of Theodore, Franklin, and Eleanor Roosevelt to create the idea of a Rooseveltian century. It is about doing research, analyzing primary sources, and connecting all this information with a coherent and logical interpretation. It is an invitation to think critically and historically, and it wants to give you a glimpse of what it means to be a historian at work.

TOP REVIEWS FROM THE ROOSEVELTIAN CENTURY
It was wonderful. I learned a lot. I am withdrawing because at age 71, I don't need to be writing research papers but just enjoying myself.
I enjoy the interaction and interface scopes to really delve into a history and biography type course.
excellent, do it again! plus have all students watch Ken Burns films on the three Roosevelts!
It was a nice course that touched on the different aspects of the Roosevelt presidencies.
