The events described in Billy Joel’s “We Didn’t Start the Fire” span about forty years of U.S. history. The lyrics include references to people, places and events from four decades of world occurrences. In this class, students will learn about many of the people, places and events in depth.

We will cover the following topics in class:

  • Brooklyn’s Got a Winning Team
  • Polio Vaccine
  • Marilyn Monroe
  • Space Monkeys
  • Bay of Pigs
  • Adolf Eichmann
  • China’s Under Martial Law
  • Terror on the Airline
  • Ho Chi Minh

Additionally, students will do their own research, and, then, categorize items from the song as well as illustrate their historical relevance. Students use an online chart to display their research. In addition, students make personal connections by working on a self- or teacher-selected lyrical project.

The class will be made up of lecture, videoes and in-depth discussions.  Students will also be researching and presenting their findings via a longterm project.

Students can expect approximately one to two hours of homework weekly.


Registration deadline is March 1, 2022

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
