Description

Class Overview

This is a 6 week course designed for homeschoolers aged 12 years old and up. The course will cover colonialism and the founding of early America from English pilgrims landing at Plymouth Rock in 1629 to the outbreak of the French and Indian War in 1754. We will incorporate literature, film and art into classroom activities and homework to give students interdisciplinary tools for learning about this time period. This class is a preface to another 6 week course on The American Revolution and is recommended for students who may be interested in the follow-up course.

Logistics

The class will take place from 9am to 11am on Wednesdays (Sept 20th to October 25th) at a public library classroom to be decided. The course is $200 for the entire 6 weeks. Registration via Eventbrite is free. Once you register, the course instructor will follow-up with your provided contact information to discuss the course fee, which can be paid via check or online with PayPal. Email haleyjoburns@gmail.com with any questions!
