Our online class combines once weekly live-online class time with reading, videos, assignments and quizzes organized through our learning portal, Canvas.
History Dragon uses visual/spatial elements and guardian dragons with mnemonic clues to understand each time segment. Students walk away with a valuable overview of world history and relative placement of key events / figures /movements, such as the beginning of writing and bronze-making, Alexander the Great, the fall of Constantinople, Scramble for Africa, Age of Revolutions, 20th century power struggles, and the 2015 refugee crisis.
Students develop a sense of time chronology and interconnectedness among dates based on which dragon it is associated with, not by learning dates. The focus of the class is on grasping the big picture of world history, its chronology, and connecting the events with the world map.
