The witch trials of early European and American history constitute a formative event in our civil society’s evolution. They expressed a theocratic mindset supported by civil power over life and death. The significance of this information serves as an object lesson in governance and the world today.
As a person who has been researching this topic for over twenty years, I use a wide range of verified sources and different types of sources. I make a point to select my resources deliberately and with the age group and verified data in mind. I have made a practice of collecting, recording, and verifying years of data on the subject of the witch-trails, ancient traditions and teachings, and ancient history and cultural beliefs.
I can make connections between various sources of data, processing it into understandable and relatable information. The information taught in my classes is verifiable and based on actual historical records.
This class will get the students thinking and generating new questions to ask about our collective pasts. Without knowledge of our past, we undoubtedly place ourselves on a path to repeat those mistakes. I feel confident that I can teach your student objective and unbiased history based on pure historical fact. I have a masters degree in Healthcare Administration, and I am well versed in research and finding definitive information with a minor in cultural anthropology. Thank you
