How did that happen????
My daughter normally is nervous with history classes because of memorizing dates. It was a breath of fresh air to find a history class that focused on the who, what and why. She was able to organize what she learned her way and retained more information that way. The assignments provided were open ended and allowed my daughter to think how the events may have happened and work on supporting her thought.
It was also a great “camp” in the summer during COVID.
Critical thinking at it's finest
I LOVED the CSI class- not only for my son but for myself. I absolutely loved that Jonathan did not tell the students how to interpret some of the mysteries in our history.
Instead he presented them so many options and theories to let them decide by backing it up with facts they learned during class. It was the best kind of critical thinking. My son learned a ton of skills in this class. I always had so much fun going over his homework because I learned something each time too!
(This review is for a CSI class of a different time period but this one will not disappoint!)
