This course dives into the important values and factors considered when our country was created and is taught through the words of the men and women of that time period (primary sources). These "founding principles" were designed and intended to be everlasting, and should be used as the lens through which we evaluate modern issues. The teacher helps to give historical context to quotes, documents, and letters.
Each "Big Idea" is taught through video lessons (ranging from 10-45 minutes). These can be watched on a TV, computer, phone, or tablet. Depending on your child and your preferred role, they can do this independently, or with you. Each lesson has an optional downloadable, printable Guided Learning packet where you can choose which elements are right for your families learning journey. We also offer an option to enroll in a weekly live discussion with teacher and other students.
