HistoryAtOurHouse, the world’s premiere secular homeschooling history program, is enjoying a terrific start to the new academic year.
Students from Massachusetts to Bangladesh are enjoying this year’s American History program, which is delivered using the same means as the “A First History for Adults” Curriculum.
This year’s program is unique in a number of ways. For one, this is the first year of the History Through Art program, which both enhances student’s appreciation of the importance of what they are learning in history, and their appreciation of the nature of great visual art. To date, students have enjoyed paintings such as “The Grey Cardinal,” by Jean-Leon Gerome, which concretizes the power of religion in European culture, and “Columbus at Salamanca,” by William Powell, which dramatizes Columbus’s independence.
Students also enjoyed learning Poetry related to the story of Columbus, including “Columbus,” by Joaquin Miller, and “Columbus” by Edward Everett Hale.
Having covered the European background to the Story of America as well as the Age of Discovery, the program is now moving to the period of Colonization and Colonial Wars.
