This course and course text takes the view point that, in general, America has been an incredible force for liberty in the world. We won’t teach that America is always right, but we also won’t teach that America is always wrong. We’ll look at America’s founding documents to discover the great legacy of liberty that they intended to leave for us. As students uncover the events of American History, they will evaluate whether or not that legacy of liberty was maintained and preserved through it all.
Your student will love the live class format, where they can interact with the teacher, and with fellow students.
