Apocalypse NOW! “The Fourth Turning” in Real Time

Thursday, August 20, 2020

America’s next crisis is upon us. William Strauss and Neil Howe’s 1997 work, "The Fourth Turning: What the Cycles of History Tell Us About American’s Next Rendezvous with Destiny", brilliantly explores the predictable cycles of history, delving into the role that generational theory plays in our ever interconnected world, while predicting with eerie accuracy the problems which would be likely to catalyze the next American Crisis. From fiscal crisis to terrorism, rising authoritarianism to civil unrest, join MPSD history teachers Matt Kadow and Carl Sieracki on for Apocalypse NOW! “The Fourth Turning” In Real Time, a guided exploration and discussion of the book over nine weeks. This new series will be airing as a Premiere Event on MPL’s Facebook page— Head to MPL's Facebook page, click on "Events" and head to Apocalypse NOW for a complete weekly breakdown.
