There is a class description for each course- It is a small run down of what we do in class. 

Cultural Anthropology
Thisis an introductory College class.  We will be working  with LSC .

This is an introductory class for College

World Religions
This is a college/High school course.

It studies the various religions of the world

US History
In this class we review the Colonial period.  We do several early projects on The Revolutionary War- A you were there idea.... We go in greater depth for the Civil War and the students do a presention to their peers.  Students do talk about posters when covering the West and make their own Ad for early inventions.  They will study WWII & WWII  And we will do different projects when covering our 20th Century.  We generally end with the early 1980's The 80's-  Just doesn't seem like History to me!!

www.classzone.com is a great place to review chapters, concepts, and find research information!

College Psychology
Students have a chance to earn college credit in this course.  We are working with CLC for college credit.  I have been very fortunate to have various speakers come in to speak to this class!

My Psyc lab is a tool students can use for this class.  See your textbook for more information on how to access this.

schmidt_001Our college Socilogy class is also with LSC in Brainerd.  We often observe different groups.   the Elelmentary is always a great source for observations!
