Open Tent Academy
Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.
In this class, we will explore World War 1, World War 2, the Cold War, and the rise of new global “superpowers” in the 20th Century. We will examine the causes of the First World War and how alliances between countries caused the first “global war”. From there, we will look at how the after effects of World War 1 planted the seed that became World War 2. From there we will look at the post World War 2 division of Germany, the creation of NATO and the Warsaw Pact and the effects of the Cold War. This class is a combination of lecture and documentary video clips as well as discussion.

I will never forget our daughter’s excitement as she watched one of Mr. Jonathan’s required documentaries in the class 20th Century Wars and the Rise of the Superpowers and couldn’t believe she recognized and knew all of the names and places. History is not a strong suit for our girl, and for her to show a passion for World War I is remarkable. The choice of reading assignments, videos and documentaries all parlayed well into a comprehensive history course. We have truly enjoyed Mr. Jonathan’s teaching style and desire to bring the past alive and look forward to taking another class with him next semester.
