Importance to Education Today The Civil War had a huge impact on the male students because they were taken out of academic programs to serve in the war. It also highlights the diversity of each student’s learning styles which helped them to succeed in the classroom and recognize their individuality. The Progressivism Approach to teaching allowed for students to learn best as they participated in activities and courses that interested them. Today, students have the choice to serve their country or partake in studies that interest them while in school.
