Scholar History 2018-19 Classes

Why do people run marathons? Who untied the Gordian Knot? Is there a ghost in Hudson Bay? What kinds of weapons were used in WWI?

FIND OUT THE ANSWERS, AND MORE AS WE LEARN THE STORIES OF ANCIENT GREECE, THE VIKINGS, EARLY EXPLORERS, COLONIAL LIFE, THE US CONSTITUTION, WORLD WAR I, THE GREAT DEPRESSION, AND THE HISTORY OF CHINA. 

 

From the great leaders and conquerors of civilizations, to the great mathematicians and philosophers of ancient times to the present, we will study the stories that helped form our world into what it is today.  

This year we will focus on ancient Greece, China, the vikings, Christopher Columbus, WWI, the roaring 20's and the Great Depression, as well as goal setting, and becoming a self-directed scholar. This will be a fun and engaging class where your scholar will learn, and love it. It's going to be a fabulous homeschooling year!

About the Mentor: Hi, I’m Coni Sue Cutler. The wife of my best friend, Jim, and mother of 4 homeschooled children. I love to learn and teach, especially history.  I have an 11 year teaching background in both public and private schools. This will be my 7th year teaching this History class and I thoroughly enjoy it!  I have also mentored youth classes in public speaking, scholar writing, math, and have led both Liberty Girls and Statesmanship clubs. I am currently studying education grades k-8 at Western Governor's University. I also enjoy homeschooling my 4th and youngest child, Kip.  I love to read, play games, hike, run and laugh. I can hardly wait to start mentoring this history class. I would love to have you join us!

This is a class I have taught for years with a lot of success where students have a more engaging experience discussing ideas, doing projects, and going deeper into important issues. This class provides a healthy balance for students to be away from home for 2 days a week in a structured environment, yet still get that needed one-on-one time at home with the 3 Rs (reading, writing and arithmetic) as well as time for any extra-curricular classes they might be taking outside the home. 

Interested?
Call me with any questions and enrollment information.

I would love to visit with you! (801-296-6447).

Thanks
