Teaching the Civil War class on line has been made a lot easier given the wealth of digital resources provided by the American Battlefield Trust. Their IN4 videos, four minute videos that cover a wide range of topics on the Civil War have been perfect to align with student reading of the Pulitzer Prize winning book BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM by James McPherson.
While teaching online I have had GREAT success with the high school Civil War class using the tremendous digital resources from the American Battlefield Trust. We've been watch a good number of their IN4 videos which cover different topics of the Civil War that align perfectly with the students reading of James McPherson's Pulitzer Prize winning, BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM.
SO glad you changed the school's name!

FRENCH 2 with Madam Carraway. Students (in-person and virtual) are learning party/celebration vocabulary. They listened to someone describe plans for a future party and answered comprehension questions about it. In the first half of class, students listened to the dialogue multiple times and took notes, then compared their notes and their answers to the comprehension questions with a classmate during breakout sessions. They did a really great job! #loudounschoolforadvancedstudies #ashburnvirginia #virtuallearning2020
