This class is taught by Kelly Jewell, a lifelong History enthusiast. She believes that the study of history can be enlivened through the use of primary resources, the study of individual lives, and by studying historical events in context with the literature, art, and music of the time. Mrs. Jewell is a former middle school history teacher and has undergraduate degrees in History and Deaf Education as well as a Masters in Education. She is entering her thirteenth year of homeschooling her four children, ages 11 to 17.
