Today's Americans are defined by the past...whether they like it or
not. In order to understand who we are, we must know from where we have
come. History is drama of enormous consequence. Presented as such, this
is not your typical names and dates and blah-blah-blah type of class.
We will journey from the discovery of America to contemporary history-in-the-making
using a variety of interactive, hands-on activities. There is a fair amount
of at-home reading. Please become familiar with the length and content
of the literature choices before you sign up your student.
