Happy Fourth of July! In this one time class, we will examine the history of America's biggest holiday. We will take a brief look at what led to the adoption of the Declaration of Independence, why it is celebrated on the 4th of July and not the 2nd, and how it was celebrated in the 1700's. What's so American about apple pie? Why do we have barbecues? When did it become a federal holiday? We will take a look at the use of fireworks, the American flag, and the history behind the Star...
Students will learn about how and why this holiday is celebrated.
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions. I have a passion for history and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
There may be some Youtube videos that are seen during this class. I will share my screen and learners will not need to access them on their own.
