Let’s talk a walk-through history and discover all the amazing and crazy things that happened this week in world history.

Each week we will learn about different people or events from both American and World history that happened this week. We will look at events that made history, such as the moon landing or the Challenger Space Shuttle explosion, to people and pop culture. We will discuss what impact each of these events made on history and how are viewed or have influence society today. 

Each class will consist of a PowerPoint lecture, some videos, and a brief history about the field or time period. 

Students are encouraged to communicate and discuss topics. Questions are also encouraged, so we may go off on (relatable) tangents This is a class where students can learn and share their thoughts and opinions about history. Discussions are kept at an age-appropriate level, but as this is a history class, some discussions or questions may arise about war, violence, racism, sexism, and discrimination.

When the twenty-week class is done students will have a greater understanding of major events in history.

Students can expect about one hour of homework weekly.

NOTE: Registration deadline is August 15, 2022.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
