Registration Still Open for American History Alive! – The 1800s
Homeschoolers will come face-to-face with famous Americans in American History Alive-the 1800s! During second quarter, students will meet Dolley Madison, Marquis de Lafayette, Abraham Lincoln, Harriet Tubman, Ulysses S and Julia Dent Grant (double appearance), Robert E. Lee, and Clara Barton!
The American History Alive! series is a one-of-a-kind, weekly rendez-vous with key figures in American History. These characters are brought to life for students though engaging presentations by professional, costumed, living history interpreters. Students will connect faces, personalities, humor, and fun facts with influential characters in America’s history!
Living history interpreters are the professionals employed by museums, historical sites, and conferences. They have typically studied their historical character for years and tell their stories and contributions in a compelling first-person narrative. Presentations are conversational in style, often involve the audience, and conclude with spontaneous audience Q & A. Watch the historical actors answer 21st century questions in character with period replies!
American History Alive! meets at 10:00 am on Wednesdays at the Compass campus in Oakton. The 1800s series begins on Wednesday, October 29. Registrations are still being accepted. Register online for this program. (Students younger than third grade or age 8 must be accompanied by a paying parent or adult.) Not sure if your child will enjoy this type of program? Try a one-day pass to meet John Adams on Wed. October 22!
