Nock Middle School Students Create Massachusetts History Slide Show

In February, 2007, members of the Nock Middle School’s grade five Crimson Team created their first Massachusetts history slide show. Based on the Massachusetts History and Social Science Frameworks, the show consists of four segments: Overview of the Colony; Conflicts over Land; Maritime Trade and Colonial Democracy; and Education in Colonial Massachusetts. Students explored these topics via a library scavenger hunt, chose a topic of interest to them, researched the topic, and wrote a paragraph on it. Next they created a PowerPoint slide and finally they recorded their own voices reading their work. We hope you enjoy the show!

New College Founded in Cambridge Massachusetts.

By Mark B.

Harvard was founded in 1636 by the Puritans. It is near the Charles River. They founded it so indentured servants and wealthy colonial men could get an education. When John Harvard died he left his library and half his estate for the school. It started out with only nine students and one teacher. Seven United States presidents went to Harvard. It is the oldest college in the United States. Harvard has the biggest library in America and it started with just John Harvard’s library. We remember Harvard’s founding because it was the first college founded in the United States and now it is one of the best universities in the world.

Harvard College

By Alexus A.

Harvard College was founded in 1636 by the General Court of Massachusetts. Harvard is located in Cambridge, Massachusetts. On September 14, 1638, John Harvard died leaving his library and half of his estate to a local, newly established college and that is why Harvard College is named after John Harvard. At Harvard you get an education. Back then the purpose of Harvard was for young men to become ministers. In the earlier years of Harvard, students often paid their tuition with livestock. Back then there used to be nine students and a master of an enrollment. Seven of our presidents attended Harvard including John Adams, John Quincy Adams, Theodore and Franklin Roosevelt, Rutherford Hayes, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, and George W. Bush. John Adams graduated from Harvard in 1755 and became a lawyer in 1758. As Harvard grew, Holden Chapel, Hollis Hall, Harvard Hall, Stoughton Hall, and Massachusetts Hall were added. Harvard celebrated its 350th anniversary in 1986. We remember Harvard’s founding because it was the first college in the United States of America!

Harvard College

By Tim B.

In 1636, Harvard College was founded in Cambridge, Massachusetts by vote of the Great and General Court of Massachusetts. It is the oldest institution of higher learning in the United States. Wealthy young men went to college there for four years and if they wanted to become ministers three extra years. Harvard offered a classic academic course based on the English university model but consistent with the Puritans’ beliefs. Most graduates became ministers. Some of the places included in Harvard during 1767 were Holden Chapel, Hollis Hall, Harvard Hall, Stoughton Hall and Massachusetts Hall. Harvard is important because seven presidents went there and if they didn’t they wouldn’t have become the presidents of the United States. We remember Harvard because it is one of the greatest universities in the world and a lot of people graduated from there.

Harvard College

By Kyle B.

In the year 1636, the General Court of Massachusetts founded a college because the Puritans needed to educate their men in Massachusetts rather then sending them back to England to study.When John Harvard died on September 14, 1638, he left his library and half his estate behind. So that’s why the General Court named Harvard after him. It started out with one classroom, nine students and one instructor. The students studied the classics like Latin and Greek. Life at the college was quite strict. Students got up at 5:00, headed to the chapel at 6:00, then had breakfast at 7:00. Classes started at 8:00. The students had the rest of the afternoon to study. Supper started at 6:00. Then at curfew, they had to blow out the candles and put out the fire to go to bed. Harvard is a University that has taught seven U.S. presidents like John Adams and Teddy Roosevelt, and many other famous Americans. Harvard is the oldest college in the nation. It has been standing 371 years in Cambridge, Massachusetts. We remember Harvard because it was the first college in North America.

William and Mary College

by Emma H.

The William and Mary College is a nice college in Virginia. Students learned to run plantations and govern colonies. (At Harvard University they did not teach the same thing.) Some famous people studied at William and Mary College like George Washington, John Tyler and Thomas Jefferson. William III and Mary II founded the college. William III, also known as William Orange, became king of three countries in only one year! Mary was William’s cousin but she still married him to keep the royal family in one family. We remember William and Mary because it is one of the nation’s oldest colleges, second only to Harvard.

The William and Mary College Established

By Ariana F.

The William and Mary College was established in 1693. King William and Queen Mary founded the college which is located in Williamsburg, VA. When it was first established it was for Indians only. Soon after that, it was for young men and boys but no girls allowed! Three of the most famous presidents studied there: George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, as well as John Tyler. The college taught the men and boys how to run the plantations, how to govern the colony and eventually they became members of the House of Burgesses. Also, they would get their master’s, bachelor’s, or their doctor’s degree. The college became the second oldest college in the country. Harvard, another great college, was the oldest in the country. We remember this college because of its three famous students and also because it is the second oldest in the country with wonderful education to go along with it.
