The IB programme at Hvitfeldtska Gymnasiet (HVG) started in 1989-1990 with a pre-IB class. 1990-91 was the first year of the Diploma Programme (IBDP). In January 1991 I was temporary hired as an IB History teacher at HVG. It was an interesting and chaotic experience. After just a short period I went to the US and taught History at PSU (Portland State University in Oregon) and PCC (Portland Community College in Oregon). In 1998 I returned to HVG and the IBDP programme. This year (2020) I celebrated 22 years in a row as an IBDP History Teacher – and that was also my last year as a History teacher in the Diploma Programme at HVG.
This website ”macgregorishistory” started 2004. It has been used mainly for the IBDP Programme with lots of content over the years as well as a follow-up on every individual lesson. Since I no longer teach IBDP History it will receive a new look and function. Part of it will be used for my pre-IB classes and my N3 class – and part of it will be used for tutoring individual students and teachers in the Diploma Programme.
With this short background I wish you welcome to macgregorishistory!
