Here’s a brief summary of the story you never got in high school, college, or grad school. Neither did I. But your kids can get it, and maybe they’ll fill you in — as long as you don’t get tired of saying, “I’ve never heard that. Are you sure?”
This is lesson 176 of my American history course in the Ron Paul Curriculum. It begins week 36.
The first five lessons are here:
Students write two major term papers: one on the Constitutional convention and the other on the events leading to Pearl Harbor.
At the end of the course, they are prepared to pass either the Advanced Placement exam in American history or the two CLEP exams. If they pass, they satisfy the requirement of a one-year American history course in college: six semester credits.
In the final week, I substitute longer lectures for daily readings.
