This multimedia course will take students through the 1st half of the book Courage & Conquest: Discovering Canadian History. Each lesson includes a short introductory video by Donna Ward, the lesson in audio, video teaching and explanation about the assignments including the Six Historical Thinking Concepts, a lesson with Christian content, and some high school assignments.

Families will still need to manage a time line and extra reading as listed in the course to enhance learning.

Pre-recorded videos allow students to work at their own pace. There will not be live classes or discussion groups at this time.

The course will expire one year after purchase. It is split into two parts (Series 1 and Series 2) to allow for more flexibility with expiry dates.

The book Courage & Conquest is essential to the course. Siblings of one homeschool family may use the course together.

    We are currently in Indonesia, and Vimeo videos are blocked here. We are able to access them using a VPN, but Safari seems to work better than Google on this. Maybe this will be of help to others who might try and access your curriculum outside of Canada. My son is watching the videos beside me as I test them out, and is wanting to start the first lesson right away! We’re looking forward to it.
