You now have a choice! Attend Home School History on either the third Wednesday or the prior Tuesday of each month. This month choose from Tuesday October 18th or Wednesday October 19th.
The National Archives at Atlanta invites the home school community to participate in Home School History. Using the primary source wealth of the National Archives, students will experience American history with original documents from our regional holdings and from the online resources from other facilities of the National Archives. Students will also be exposed to sessions on research skills and research projects. Sessions are appropriate for grades 5 through 12 (ages 11 to 18). All sessions are free. Students under the age of 14 need to be accompanied by an adult. For more information and the year-long schedule of each morning and afternoon session, contact our Education Specialist, Joel Walker at firstname.lastname@example.org or 770-968-2530.
If you plan to attend, we would appreciate that you contact us before each day you plan to attend for photocopying and other planning purposes.
The October 18/October 19 sessions are listed below. Each session is approximately 2 hours in length (Wednesday's sessions are a repeat of Tuesday's).
