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.
We often explore and learn about history from the point of view of the ones that wrote it, usually wealthy, white men. But stories and history can have several perspectives. This class will reveal these alternative stories of our past from a female (or minority) perspective. By reevaluating history from multiple perspectives, students will develop a deeper understanding of our past, present, and future. This 10 week course will start with a point of view activity and an overview of world history to help students grasp the idea of varying perspectives. Each subsequent week will cover major milestone in world history and what life was like during that time including, Ancient times (Egypt, Greek & Roman), Renaissance Period, Early American History, Industrial revolution, WW1 & 2, and the American Civil Rights movement. Not only will students learn about each of these periods of history, they will focus on how women experienced these events.
Registration deadline is December 15, 2020.
There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
