Join me for an in-depth exploration of important moments in US history! In this class, we’ll be analyzing primary sources, including texts but also art and photographs. We’ll be doing a lot of thinking, writing, and discussing, as well as fun projects! The way this class is organized by topic will give you an excellent opportunity to compare ideas across historical events. You’ll have a great foundation for applying those ideas and Christian principles to modern-day events as well!
