Expanding Your Writing Skills: Did you know that you have been writing your whole life? It’s true. Even if you have never put a pen to paper or typed out a single word on a keyboard, you have been writing. How? To understand the answer to that question, you need to understand that writing is a process. Even if you have never written anything before, you have been in the first stage of the writing process your entire life. Maybe you have written before. Now you need to move to the next stage.
Maybe you have made up stories or written about other people’s stories or written to a friend about something that happened to you. In this course, there’s far more than writing activities for kids. In this course, you can learn how to be a better writer, and maybe you will produce a different kind of writing than you’ve ever written before.
History Around the World: Through reading assignments, comprehension questions, reflection questions, and several projects, this history course focuses heavily on the people who made history including Theodore J. Frelinghuysen, George Whitefield, Baron von Steuben, Benedict Arnold, Molly Pitcher, Sybil Ludington, Winfield Scott, Tecumseh, Venustiano Carranza, Porfirio Diaz, and many more.
Learning About World Cultures: You’ve heard of Russia and Brazil. What about Moldova and Swaziland? This course will travel the globe, from continent to continent, providing a brief glimpse of the culture present within each country on that continent, with an opportunity for further research to enrich the student’s understanding of the world around them. From population and languages to religion and holidays, there is an abundance of facts to learn about each stop along the way.
