HOW TO MAKE A DRAMATIC
IMPACT ON YOUR STUDENTS
Would your students love a program that doesn't require homework, quizzes, and - ready for this? - classroom discussion? Of course, but juvenile fantasies are not our specialty.
In addition to being a full elective, our program can be enjoyed in every homeroom just before the first period bell. Or, on every home computer while students are learning from home.
It's a video program of 50 videos, each playing between 4 and 7 minutes. Play one video each morning for 10 weeks, and watch your students request to watch them again and again.
Teachers can teach this program as a working elective that says “goodbye” to remembering boring facts, dreaded dependency on a U.S. History textbook, or the frustrating lack of access to primary source documents.
Enjoy teaching American history by using stories on video from an American historical event that generate meaningful life lessons your students can use for self-awareness (who you are) and for personal growth (what you can achieve now).
Suddenly, classroom discussion becomes animated. Your students are engaged like never before. The light bulbs are turning on. How is their reaction making you feel?
With rich content, this takes "relevance" to a whole new level, and you can take a front row seat to witnessing an increase in the positive self-esteem of your students.
With 88 stories, over 200 life-lessons, and a model digital workbook, our course elective will help each of your students discover their own leadership ability, the advantages of a strong character, and the easy steps to their daily success.
It answers the self-centered question every teen is asking,
"What's in it for me if I learn American history?”
With this flexible program, you'll answer that question in a stimulating and brand new way.
And you already know that the mind loves novelty.
History websites will continue to be useful, and teaching history will be a lot more fun.
You will use video to engage your students because their preferred source of information is video.
Now you have a captive audience with this course.
How would you like to become the only teacher who makes learning American history emotionally connecting and personally rewarding?
And make your elective the favorite of every student?
Plus, your students will get an advantage in the college application process. Colleges consider leadership as the #1 quality in applicants.
And the college application essays of your students, after taking this course, can prove that they don't have to be a club president or team captain to be a leader. They are already.
PROOF: A teacher in Minneapolis will gladly speak with you when you want to know her success with the program. So will a teacher in Los Angeles, and another in Chapel Hill.
