Social Science Sleuths is a class for homeschooled middle and high school students. This fall the topic will be “Pearls of Culture: Cultural History of Modern Europe.” The class meets Monday mornings at 10:30 at the Hessen Cassel Library, 3030 E Paulding Rd, Fort Wayne, IN 46816.
What is European cultural history? Think food. Think music. Think language. Think religious identity. Think royalty. Think explorers. Think philosophy. Think literature. You begin to get the idea! Yes there will be some dates to learn, but we will be spending most of the time with the stories of the people whose lives are rooted in Europe.
