American History – Live Classes and Recordings for 2020-21!
SPRING MINI-COURSE: March 1 – April 14
The 2020-21 school year covers American history from many angles. In the Spring Mini-Course, available to continuing and new students, we’ll be looking specifically at the industrial revolution that has transformed modern life.
We’ll learn about the story of transportation from the Age of Steam, to automobiles and air travel, and to the age of space exploration.
We’ll also study the rise of telecommunications, from telegraphs to smartphones–and especially the transformations brought about by modern computing
Technological innovation in power generation, food production, and medicine will also feature in this sweeping history that will help students to make sense of the world we live in.
One of the most important parts of the class will be the study of society’s responses to technology from Luddism (think: the “screen time” debate in your household) and transcendentalism, to conservationism and preservationism, and finally to modern environmentalism and catastrophism.
This six-week segment will be an especially great way for new students to try History At Our House!
