I normally don’t interrupt the flow of ‘History’ related information on this site for administrative news, but I believe it’s important in this case.
Effective immediately, my other websites, Tech4Classrooms.org and CivilWarIronclads.wordpress.com, will be shut down. The sites may go down as soon as this weekend or within the next three weeks. The parallel twitter.com sites will similarly close their doors.
While the content of CW Ironclads will be incorporated into this site (WorldHistoryReview.org), T4C’s content will not be replicated. The T4C Logo will be retained and become the sole logo of WHR.org.
The decision to initiate these changes was planned some time ago. I thought now was a good time to do it. My experiences over the last four months has been less-than-stellar to say the least. Self-reflection during this time has also convinced me to choose my professional retirement date as well, but I’ll wait to announce that until it’s appropriate and relevant.
This site will also undergo a change. Effective immediately, the site will gradually turn away from it’s course-bound structure to a purely ‘History’ content website. It will still be aimed at the History enthusiast of any age, but not continue to be an exclusive portal into the courses I teach at Stuyvesant High School. Teachers and students will still be able to use the content for their high school courses without fear of any changes in that realm.
Initially, the administrative course content will be lightened and then completely disappear. Other, non-history related, content will similarly vanish in lock-step with my plans to professionally retire.
As always, you can reach me about this or any other post made on this site by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org.
