Ordinary People Change the World

This course, based on Brad Meltzer’s New York Times bestselling biographies written specifically for kids, introduces students to ordinary people who changed our world by doing extraordinary things.

Each week, students will hear the story of one hero’s life, beginning with their childhood. Students will explore the challenges, triumphs, and struggles of these fascinating people and connect those stories to themes such as discovery, compassion, equality, and courage. We will learn together through the reading of engaging literature, lively class discussion, extension activities, and videos. Students will create lapbooks and timelines with details from these hero’s lives. The course will culminate in a People Fair, where students dress up and present as their own chosen hero – past or present!

Students will learn about four historic icons and be inspired by the idea that ordinary people change the world. Students will research and present on the life of a remarkable figure of their own choosing.

All books are from the Ordinary People Change the World series by Brad Meltzer.

Brings history to life

Rated 5 out of 5
February 15, 2021

My daughter just loves this class. History is so different when it’s taught in this perspective. My daughter couldn’t learn enough, even aside from class reading, we looked for more books, videos, and any information we could find. It’s always a pleasure to have Miss Brittany as a teacher. She’s so encouraging and really keeps the kids engaged.
