Too often, Government classes turn the noteworthy details into tedious discourse that would put even the president to sleep. American Government 101 cuts out the boring explanations, and instead provides hands-on activities that keeps you engaged as you learn. From the backstory of the Constitution to the institution of the Electoral College, this class is packed with hundreds of entertaining tidbits and concepts to help you learn about how the government of the United States works. Whether you want to learn about how policies and laws are created, or just want to become a better-informed voter, American Government 101 has all the answers–even the ones you didn’t know you were looking for.

This class is a combination of lecture, video clips as well as discussion. 

For students to understand how the government works and become a more informed citizen of the United States.

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by December 14th to run. If we do not meet this minimum, parents will be notified via email.

Learning to love the past

History. This was definitely not my strongest area as a homeschool mother. I knew to provide my kids with what they needed, I had to look at outside resources. Taking a leap of faith, I registered both my 7th and 8th grader for U.S. History with Jonathan Meola.

Learning history through simple short stories using. “A History of US,” has been fun to read-a-loud. With a subject I once disliked myself, I’ve been able to power through, and engage with my children learning to love the past. Mr. Meola is a phenomenally fair instructor, and has allowed our kids to use their creativity for the semester project. The kids have enjoyed this area most about the class. Seeing their creations from the past come to life is a gift in itself. Thank you, Jonathan! You have lit a fire for history within my children!

Thanks for making homeschooling so much easier for us parents

We have absolutely loved Jonathan’s Ancient Civilizations class this year.

He is so organized, and his classes are expertly taught – my son usually makes me leave the room but I will often go back and listen to the recordings and watch some of the videos because they are so interesting.

We are thrilled that OTA is now a vendor with our charter school, and since Z will be in middle school next year, we plan on signing up for a lot more classes.

Keep up the excellent job and thanks for making homeschooling so much easier for us parents!

Fantastic!

What a fantastic course combining hands-on STEM & Social Studies.

I loved watching my children learn about key landmarks around the world with such eagerness and curiosity.

They dove into the history, architectural marvel, geography, and engineering in an engaging fun way.

Mr. Meola is a wonderful teacher and this class is highly recommended!

Best Course EVER!

During our family new year’s celebration, everyone completed a year-in-review questionnaire. One question asked, “What are you most proud of that you accomplished this past year?”

Without hesitation, our daughter blurted out “I learned to write a five-paragraph essay!”

Our daughter, who up until this past semester would only write science lab reports, should be proud of this accomplishment. She willingly dedicated days to completing required essays, and we owe this success to Lights! Camera! Action! class.

Mr. Jonathan’s enthusiasm, instruction, encouragement and feedback all generated a newfound level of confidence within our daughter. Plus, the course spurred everyone in our family (including grandparents) to watch incredible movies, which normally would not be in our Netflix queue. Mr. Jonathan’s impact reached beyond our daughter.

Amazing course!

I would like to say thank you. My daughter, Laura, was so inspired by OTA’s Lights! Camera! Action! class. She WANTS to improve at writing instead of shying away from the process that she finds so difficult. She is putting her heart and soul into trying. I am seeing improvement and I am seeing enthusiasm that just were not there before. You have no idea how joyful that makes me. This latest essay was really, really hard but a bit less overwhelming than the prior two. Slowly the elements that Laura is learning in class are sinking in. I appreciate all that you do for the class! Thank you!
