A statement attributed to Abraham Lincoln delivers a frightening prospect:  “The philosophy of the school room in one generation will be the philosophy of government in the next.”  In our 1st quarter we will learn our rights and responsibilities as U.S. citizens and know how to apply them correctly.

In quarters 2-4, we will discover that U.S. history is not full of right vs. wrong.  Instead, we will dispel myths and learn how to apply our individual values and beliefs to discover what history is trying to tell us and how it applies to each one of us personally.
