Join me for this one year journey into American History! We will learn about these great United States from a Christian perspective while reading some great literature to go along with our text readings. We will begin around the year 1000 with a brief look at Leif Ericsson and the Vikings as well as the Pilgrims and the Mayflower. From there we will look into the events which brought the 13 original colonies together to write a Declaration of Independence from England and led the Revolutionary War. By the end of this one year course, we will find ourselves in present day America, having studied the Civil War, 1st and 2nd World Wars, Vietnam, and much more. This course will pair nicely with the English class I am teaching immediately after this class.
In addition to the Mystery of History text, we will use the Beautiful Feet study guides to read and analyze various books that cover this period of history. I will upload vocabulary for each book and have the analysis questions for discussion. At the beginning of each semester, I will provide a syllabus and a Course Description. We will follow the LumaLearn calendar with the exception of our Spring Semester Break which will be April 9-13 instead of late March.
I look forward to a fun and informative year together!
