Open Tent Academy
Open Tent Academy is an all-inclusive, virtual environment where homeschoolers (and “after-schoolers”) can take an array of classes, taught by instructors, who are experts in their fields.
Have your child learn American history through the lens of American Girl Dolls. We will focus on major events of the time period while discussing what life was like for both children and adults in those times. Students will also learn the culture, geography, lifestyle, inventions and so much more about each time period! Students will read the book independently and come to class ready to discuss!
Students will explore United States History from 1853 – 1904.
French Influence/New Orleans – Meet Cecile
Swedish Immigration – Meet Kirsten
Civil War/Underground Railroad – Meet Addy
Industrial Revolution – Meet Samantha
Students will take short comprehension quizzes, create timelines, create a map and be involved with one project during the semester, which the students will present in a pre-recorded video. We also begin to talk about some literary terms such as character, setting and conflict as they are used in literary analysis.
Registration deadline is December 15, 2020.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
