FROM THE TEACHER

Do you have a particular interest in a time period or event in history? This course will give you an opportunity to jump back in time and look at an event or person through the lens of history. You will learn to look at primary sources in order to dig deeply into a topic, and journey through a step by step process to write and edit your work, finally presenting your research in a unique and engaging way to your classmates. You will engage in discussion around novels that bring a global perspective and explore nonfiction text structures to build your toolbox of reading comprehension strategies. You will grow as a learner and share your creative side through your own stories. Let's jump into history to become great readers and writers!

If there are books and materials for this course, they can be purchased from our Online Bookstore.
