The Founding Fathers
It is our goal that by completing the work in this course, students will have a strong working knowledge of the thoughts and ideas that our country was founded on. There are many exciting things to learn from the founders, both from their personal and political lives, and it is fascinating to see the differences in opinion they had, from the strong federalism of Alexander Hamilton to the equally strong ant-federalism of Thomas Jefferson. By immersing themselves in the thoughts and writings of these men, students will gain a greater understanding of the ideas that drove the founding of our country.
Generation Joshua staff share what it takes to win a successful campaign. This includes discussions on: attitudes of a successful candidate, questions to answer before running, what to do before deciding to run, six steps to winning a campaign, campaign plans, the media, fundraising, precinct walking and campaign signs, what to do in the field, volunteers, research, mailings, campaigning in public, polls, election day, etc.
Revolution Era Sermons
This course consists of 4 lessons and provides students with the opportunity to study the sermons that impacted America’s Founders.
