In this three semester course, students further develop writing skills by beginning to shift from just getting their opinions down on paper to learning how to show evidence and make their papers persuasive. Studying historical documents will help them see history in context and give them a lens to view current events by. Reading and discussing biographies of great people puts them face to face with great leaders and naturally leads them to ask hard questions of themselves. Each semester culminates in an oral exam where the student shows what they have learned about history, writing, government and themselves.
You can expect your student to study 2-3 hours a day for this class.
