Genealogy is the study of our family history and culture.
As part of this class we work on internet search skills related to Genealogy; evaluating the reliability of the evidence available and document that evidence in the form of a dynamic Microsoft Excel file.
In addition, we will collect photographs and other artifacts related to the students' families and cultures. This might be in the form of family stories, descriptions of places that family has lived and descriptions of family traditions.
As part of the course students will be doing cultural and historic research, writing about the results of their research and documenting these results in electronic form.
Because of the interdisciplinary nature of this course with major components of writing, computer skills and the study of culture it is cross-listed for English, Social Studies Electives and Computer Applications meaning that students can earn .25 credit for any ONE of these three course categories.
