The greatest connection we can have throughout history is the human one.  Together, in Profiles in History, the students and I will take a unique perspective on each historical figure by sharing some of the lesser known facts that you may not have heard before.  As we learn about each individual, we will focus on the strength of his/her character.  I have included some people who stories you may not have heard, but they certainly deserve or admiration.  The goal is to connect with the person – not just the history. 

Each class is told in “storytelling” format.  The student will be immersed in the lives of the people we study so that they understand not only about the person, but also about the history, time period, culture and the way people lived back then.

During session one, we will learn about authors, inventors, statesmen, everyday people and war heroes that made a significant difference in the world around them and forever changed the future.  We will begin around the year 1750 and continue through the 1950s.  

This class will combine history, reading comprehension, critical thinking, reading activities, timelines and creativity!  

I can’t wait to have your child join me in this fabulous adventure meeting people from all different times and places.

NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by August 20th to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.

Amazing first Profiles class!

After my daughter’s first 10-weeks in profiles, she begged to continue.

Eva is a master storyteller. She makes history come to life!

She also weaves in writing skills without the kids noticing! Brilliant!

My daughter wants to take all three semesters!

She NEVER asks for additional classes.

I can’t think you enough Eva!

Open Tent Academy has been such a blessing to my family!

My 9th grader enrolled in a year-long Writing course, All About Essays, this year with Ms. Eva and has thoroughly enjoyed the class. His writing has improved ten-fold! We couldn’t be more pleased.

This spring, his sisters have joined him, taking Starting IEW From the Very Beginning and Profiles of History. Both girls love their classes and look forward to each week.

All three of my children have learned so much!

Thank you, OTA!
