Class Description

 

Every week I will cover a different era of American History. Students will learn through an interactive lecture in class. A handout will be provided every week with all the information contained in the lecture. I will also be posting discussion questions in the classroom for each of our topics.The discussion questions will be critical thinking questions. I want my students to focus more on the why of history, not just memorization of dates and names. This will be a great class for homeschoolers or any learner that would like to learn more about American History.
