Mission: Hero Part 1 Mentor Guide


Mission: Hero Part 1 is the first unit of a two part class.  It is written to be used in a cooperative or commonwealth school that meets one day a week for two hours.  Although, it can be adjusted to a home school setting.  It provides 15 weeks’ worth of material. The class centers on dissecting the antebellum period of the United States, the Civil War, and the aftermath of said war. Scholars will gain an understanding of past events that shape our current social, political, and world environment.  They will participate in and lead class discussions, read and dissect classic literature and historical documents, debate with their fellow scholars, learn to write effectively, prepare and deliver in-class presentations, memorize important documents and historical quotes, and much more.  In the end they will gain an understanding of their own mission and the great impact one person can make in fighting for equality, freedom, justice, and liberty.
