Full course description
Does your high school student truly grasp the history and culture of our great nation, have a working understanding of how our government works, and realize what makes America unique? Can your student identify all major aspects of American geography? By taking this course, they will gain all of this knowledge, plus public speaking and essay writing experience. Rather than just absorbing facts from a textbook, students watch movies, read historical fiction novels, memorize geography and facts using various mnemonics, and do internet research and writing projects to make the past come to life. Students will take unit exams, complete a long-term research project, and give several oral and multi-media presentations.
