Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the life and achievements of John Adams, one of the signers of the Declaration of Independence, and second President of the United States, as well as his unique friendship with Thomas Jefferson. 
No homework is assigned. 
35 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The topic of slavery will be very limited. Information will include the discussion surrounding the ideals as expressed by Adams and Jefferson in the writing of the Declaration of Independence (which was ultimately removed), that included a criticism of slavery. A short video clip (2 min) with that discussion will be shown. The clip shows the discussion of the abhorrent practice but the phrase is removed because the men believe the resolution will not pass with the criticism included. No racial slurs or inappropriate language will be shown in the class or discussion. 
Source material will be the book by David McCollough "John Adams", the official website of the John Adams national site, https://npplan.com/parks-by-state/massachusetts-national-parks/adams-national-historical-park-park-at-a-glance/adams-national-historical-park-old-house-at-peacefield/, and a few clips from the John Adams mini series which is also based on the book by David McCollough.
