I hope you are all staying well during the Covid crisis. The price of the course has been decreased to help everyone out. I am currently using this course for distance learning and it is going well. The paperless packages are a great option for students. In addition, I am allowing kids to complete a printed version of the package and then send it to me as a scanned pdf. using a scanning app ("Microsoft Lens," and, "Adobe Scan," work great - much better than receiving pictures of their work). Stay well!

Description:

  • What is the American Dream? Is it a developing story or an already defined ideal? Is the American Dream real or a utopian philosophy? This course takes an in-depth look at the Dream through the study of the nation from the Original Colonies to the present.
  • There is even an intro project and year-end culminating project entitled, “The American Dream in Real Life.”
  • The course is most often aligned with Gr. 10 or Gr. 11 American History (depending on the state).
