(2 customer reviews)


Mission: Hero Part 1 is the first unit of a two part class.  It is written to be used in a cooperative or commonwealth school that meets one day a week for two hours.  Although, it can be adjusted to a home school setting.  It provides 15 weeks’ worth of material. The class centers on dissecting the antebellum period of the United States, the Civil War, and the aftermath of said war. Scholars will gain an understanding of past events that shape our current social, political, and world environment.  They will participate in and lead class discussions, read and dissect classic literature and historical documents, debate with their fellow scholars, learn to write effectively, prepare and deliver in-class presentations, memorize important documents and historical quotes, and much more.  In the end they will gain an understanding of their own mission and the great impact one person can make in fighting for equality, freedom, justice, and liberty.

    This curriculum is phenomenal! I was a student of the co-creators last year and let me tell you, it was the best class I have ever taken. The material, the organization, and the format were absolutely incredible, both semesters. I would recommend this to ANYONE, especially those wanting to teach history in an intriguing way.

    I took this class my freshman year, and I took a normal US history class the following year. This class was so much better, it was crazy how
    the value and morals along with the history. I recommend this class to everyone!
