Ancient History & Literature - Wednesdays
Ages 14-18 - 9:00-9:55 am
Ever wonder why Homer matters? Or why knowing something about ancient philosophy is important? This study shows you why the Ancient world is still relevant to our world and how ancient philosophy shaped our understandings of the human condition and the purpose of life. Journey along with Odysseus as he navigates his way back to Crete, read those lines that capture the essence of betrayal in Shakespeare's classic Julius Caesar, learn about the elaborate superstitions and brilliant engineering of the ancient Egyptians, and read about what it may have been like to be among the crowds listening to Jesus. This one-year study includes detailed study notes, writing and research assignments, vocabulary, maps, and web links. The ancient world is revealed through excellent literature selections by award-winning authors including Genevieve Foster, Padraic Column, G. A. Henty, Edith Hamilton, and Shakespeare. Pack price includes the Ancient History Study Guide, which contains 90 lessons. We will complete 3 modified lessons from the syllabus each week. If the syllabus is followed more strictly at home, this course should be counted as an honored class. Otherwise it is a 1 credit Social Studies course.

This class teaches students persuasive writing and speaking skills, advanced note taking, and powerful tips for planning and writing a college level paper. We will cover Persuasive Writing & Speaking, Advanced Note Taking: A Dynamic Key Word Approach, and Power Tips for Planning and Writing a College Level Paper. These classes are ideally suited for students who would like to improve their confidence in writing and public speaking. The material covered will help students who had limited exposure to grammar and writing skills in earlier years and still need to improve these skills, but would prefer being in class with older students. (If your child has already taken IEW classes for at least two years and has taken Lost Tools of Writing One, this class is not recommended.)
