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!

RESEARCH: This week, we got to listen to our high schoolers present their spring semester independent research projects and our 8th grade class present their semester group research project! With topics that ranged from mechanotransduction to Japanese architecture, it's safe to say we all learned a lot this week by listening! Major thanks to Ms. Gam, Dr. Sohl, and Dr. Clinton for serving as the faculty advisers for these students as they completed their projects throughout the semester. Great job, everyone!

Conversations in the Classroom

GUEST SPEAKER: Teaching comes full circle for Mr. Percoco and his US History students as they Zoomed with Mr. Percoco's role model and former high school history teacher, Neal Adams. All of them have been reading THE PROBLEM OF DEMOCRACY: THE PRESIDENTS ADAMS CONFRONT THE CULT OF PERSONALITY, by Nancy Isenberg and Andrew Burstein. It proved to be an engaging conversation with students asking pertinent and well thought out questions.

MUSIC: Students in Ms. Ellen's middle school music class are currently discovering the effect that music can have in movies and how it contributes to the storytelling of the film. Students are stepping into the role of both the director and actor as they write and act out their own mini-movies while supplying them with a soundtrack that enhances the mood of their scene. This week, we are finishing up our scripts, making costumes, and starting to film!

THEATRE CLUB: The LSAS Theatre Club is in the middle of rehearsing their original short play about a brother and sister who accidentally fall into their mom's purse while searching for a pen, similarly to how Alice falls down the rabbit hole to Wonderland. They encounter all sorts of characters one might find in a purse on their hunt to find the pen and get out of the purse: a wallet, a pair of ear buds, a sleeve of tissues, and more. The club can't wait to premiere their show this spring!

GUEST SPEAKER: Students in Mr. Percoco's middle school Conversations in US History class had a Zoom meeting with World War I historian and author Mitchell Yockelson to discuss when "History Meets Hollywood." During their study of World War I, students watched the 1941 film "Sergeant York" starring Gary Cooper. Yockelson helped students understand that there is a difference between real history and "reel" history, and that some of our heroes are created in order to meet the needs of a society.

Our Story

WHERE BRIGHT MINDS THRIVE
Founded in 2008, Loudoun School for Advanced Studies is the only middle and high school for advanced students in Virginia.

Students work in a small, supportive community where school feels right and their ideas, interests, and highest aspirations really matter. Classes are small and are designed to encourage dialogue among teachers and peers. The setting is comfortable and the workload is reasonable. We believe this environment allows students to be and do their best.

The courses are built on great books and challenging questions, with the aim of helping students learn to think critically and creatively. Our teachers have doctorates or engineering degrees in their respective fields, allowing them to provide expert guidance and academic work designed to prepare students to be successful in higher education and in their professional lives.

At our school, teachers know their students, students know their peers, and together we work to help each other do great things.
