Join high school US History teacher David Giesen as he vets an overview--seeking your critique--of next year's approach to US History.

The curriculum's theme is "Liberating the Pursuit of Happiness."

The "elevator pitch" is: The United States was created in the stated belief that governments should exist in order to facilitate a people's ability to pursue happiness. The pursuit of happiness requires liberty to be playfully expressive. The USA is on the continuum of aligning politico-economic conditions with the sort of liberty required for people to pursue happiness.

On three successive Sunday evenings (January 8, 15, and 22) you are invited to join a virtual conference where you will remotely watch a few videos and afterwards join in discussion of those videos as they relate to the curriculum. You need not attend every session.

I welcome those desiring a short course in US history, those desirous of critiquing an unconventional approach to US history, friends of Howard Zinn-like alternate US histories, enemies of Howard Zinn-like alternate US histories, self-described woke, self-described woke-adverse, would-be US history teachers, US history teachers, and others.
