Nomadic Professor: US History 1 & 2
The Nomadic Professor US1 & US2 is an exciting departure from the typical history textbook for high schoolers. Fascinating onsite videos are interspersed among the text sections with comprehension questions for teens to complete as they watch the videos and read the lesson material. After each unit, your student will watch a presentation emphasizing critical thinking skills to evaluate historical information. Here he will be looking at excerpts from primary source documents, textbooks, and images of historical artifacts. To strengthen your teen’s historical literacy, he will be asked to evaluate social media biases, advertisements, and even political cartoons.
This entirely virtual course uses a combination of intriguing videos and engaging text with intensity options. Your teens can take US1 & US2 for high school credit. Or, if he prefers, he can opt to take the advanced track to prepare for the AP and CLEP tests.
Families will want to know that occasional historical artwork includes partial nudity.

The mini-lectures for Dr. Jackson’s history courses aren’t filmed from behind a desk. Indeed, they’re entirely unbounded by the walls of a traditional classroom. By delivering lessons on-location all over the world, the Nomadic Professor brings the settings of history to life for the student, making for a more engaging online learning experience.
Being a good student is a learned skill. Take a Nomadic course to learn how to take notes, how to track key ideas, how to integrate key terms into your vocabulary, how to do research, how to summarize big ideas, how to tease implications out of nuanced language, how to come at an argument from more than one point of view, and more.
