This is a flexible schedule course. That means that we don't have any live Zoom meetings. Instead, learners are able to access and complete the materials each week at a time that is convenient for them. Even though we don't meet live, this class is still interactive! Students will participate in video discussions every week. Some weeks, students will use interactive Boom Cards to review and test their knowledge. Learners will demonstrate mastery of the subject matter through assignments...

No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The relationship between the European colonists and the indigenous (Native American) people already living on the land was a tumultuous one. As the European settlers attempted to take more and more land to the west, many battles ensued. Violence and death is implied. Additionally, slavery was significant during this time period in terms of the lives of the enslaved people and the economies they were forced to build. However, since this is a foundational course for children, nothing is graphically depicted to keep it age appropriate.
