From Amazon.com description of the book, (Allen, Thomas B., and Cheryl Harness. George Washington: Spymaster. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic Society, 2007.)

This class is taught in English.

3 files available upon enrollmentThere is no homework, and no preparation is required to take this class. It is recommended for the student to read a book about this topic before, after or during the class to enhance their knowledge of the subject. Students tend to have more fun if they know some of the answers to my questions during the class meeting. I will recommend three titles about George Washington and his spies, but I used Thomas B. Allen's book, George Washington: Spymaster, as a course outline.
This course will prepare students for high school and college classes, but it is mostly enrichment, and does not collect assignments or offer grades. Their will be at two quizzes intended to reinforce what is learned generally given via Kahoot.it.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
Some mature content is generated by this topic, but it will be appropriate for 11-15-year-olds
