Outschool

History At Our House is joining forces with Outschool.com to provide on-line unit courses for homeschoolers across America!

Mr. Powell has created two new series: “Visions of History” — a series based on the acclaimed History Through Art component of the History At Our House curriculum, and “Big Picture Histories,” a new series of introductory histories that help students learn quickly and effectively.

This page will serve as the hub for all Outschool products, including details on the images that will be used in the “Visions of History” series.

Click on the listings below to see the images that will be discussed in each of the three images that will be discussed in these 1-hour sessions.  Each post contains a link to the Outschool site for registration.
