Class Description
Wednesday, 10:10 AM to 11:10 AM
Chronicle of Continents: A Summary History of North and South America, from the Arctic Circle to Tierra del Fuego  
Teacher:  Steve Carrier
Age:  12 - 14
Cost:  $200 tuition per year, paid in four $50 payments;
$10 copy/supply fee per year, paid in one $10 payment
Description: This is not a traditional history class.  It is a composite history of North and South America – beginning with the rise of nationalism in Europe 150 years before Columbus.  The story covers seven hundred years which leaves little time to concentrate on any one event.  Nonetheless the purpose is not in the details, but in the overview.  The student will learn of the societies, cultures, dynamics, motives, and the incredible variety that gave us the cultures and ethos we enjoy today.  A portion of this history curriculum is devoted to basic earth sciences and geography.  We will explore how the shape of events (and even the shape of the globe) shapes you and me.  Some emphasis is placed on geo-political dynamics and the Colombian Exchange, the major eco-historical impact on both the Americas and Europe.
