In this contextual history class, we do not read plays, novels, or discuss iambic pentameter (well, not too much at least).  Those aspects are covered in depth in the British Literature Year 1 Literature & Composition course.

More details about how these courses can be used for both the UK Exam Model & the USA Highschool Diploma & Transcript Model are here.

In this live class we will explore Tudor England through the life of William Shakespeare and the Georgian Era through the life of Jane Austen.  We will bring each of their lives into historical context by learning about 30+ other famous people that were alive (or had dramatic influence) in each of the time periods.  By creating a dinner party where the guests are famous people of the era, students will learn about historical events, society, culture, and current events as well as the science and philosophy of the day.

Each semester students will research a variety of  famous people including:

  • Authors/Philosophers
  • World Leaders
  • Artists
  • Musicians/Composers
  • Christian Evangelists/Theologians/Missionaries/Humanitarians
  • Social Activists
  • Scientists
  • Explorers
  • and more

Through hands-on activities, students will create a dinner party including a guest list, menu, activities, music, and more.  Each student will present their culminating project in a class presentation. And, if you choose, you can organize your own event where people attend your dinner party in person and take on the role of a famous figure from the guest list.  This extra effort is perfect for students needing a senior thesis/culminating studies project if they are keen on further study in history or literature.

This dinner party concept for each semester’s main project allows for much creativity.

Some students have enjoyed organizing military greats to meet and share war stories over pub food.  Others have organized multi-course meals with music and jesters to entertain high-society aristocrats from all over the world.  The options are limited only by the student’s creativity.

This course is a required companion to our British Literature & Composition Year 1 – Shakespeare & Austen course for those studying for the iGCSE Literature exam.  Students following the USA High School Diploma & Transcript model will receive 1 Social Studies and 1 Literature & Composition credit for each class successfully completed with a passing grade.
