History: The Mystery of History Vol. III -The Renaissance, Reformation, and Growth of Nations.
This Class will take a very hands-on and traditional approach to learning history. In addition to lecture and reading, we will be making short films, creating lapbooks, watching videos, playing games and much more. To name a few, students will be studying the likes of Michelangelo, Christopher Columbus, Martin Luther, Henry VIII., Shakespeare, Pocahontas, and Copernicus. The Mystery of History curriculum gives students the ability to see the BIG picture. Students will learn about historical events in the order in which they occurred. To get through the book in a year, we will be covering 2-3 lessons per week. Homework will mainly consist of reading and finishing any projects that were not completed in class. Optional: Field trips to the Getty Villa, Getty Museum as well as other local museums will be coordinated during the year on days outside of class.
