This class will expose your student to different viewpoints through reading and examining primary, secondary, and historian sources as well as fiction, biographies, and relevant classic literature. Students will engage in active learning through hands-on activities and map work. Rather than passively learning, your student will discover history like a historian. Students will sharpen their critical thinking skills through inquiry, analysis, logical reasoning, evaluation of historical events, and written and verbal communication. Students will understand the effect of geographical location on the story of humankind by making connections between geography and world events.
This class leads the junior high student through a study of the key facts of chemistry by digging deeper into what was studied during the elementary years and will foster independent learning in your junior high school student. Our curriculum includes all student assignment sheets, sketches, experiment sheets, and blank report pages that will need to be completed throughout the year. Each of the student assignment sheets contains the weekly topic, sketch assignment, experiment directions, report options, dates to enter, and memory work. In this course, students will also be offered Pre-Algebra or Algebra I depending on their current level. Students will learn to: make sense of problems and persevere in solving them, reason abstractly and quantitatively, construct viable arguments and critique the reasoning of others, model with mathematics, use appropriate tools strategically, attend to precision, look for and make use of structure, look for and express regularity in repeated reasoning.
We are looking into offering high school classes. If you have any interest, please contact Ruthie at email@example.com.
