- Course Syllabus:
In this class we are going to highlight the lives of important people during history. We will explore a brief biography of their life, the society and culture that shaped them and what contributions they made in their field. We will discuss how their lives would be different if they had been born in a different time and culture.
The first part of each class will be a biography of the person’s life via lecture, videos and recordings. The second part of the class will be an open discussion of what our thoughts about the person and what we can learn to implement in our own lives.
This class will be made up of readings, videos, PDFs and lectures.
A large part of the class will be discussions, in which no matter our personal feelings towards another human (teacher, classmate or the person being discussed), it is required to be respectful.
NOTE: Registration deadline is March 15, 2021.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
My son was completely engaged!
My son is currently taking the Extraordinary People from History class. He’s a very reluctant learning. He was dreading a history class. Within minutes of being in class with Mr. Jonathan, he was completely engaged. Mind maps are now his favorite way to research and compile his work and ideas. I’m so happy to see my son confident and looking forward to his class each week.
