“Self-absorption in all its forms kills empathy, let alone compassion. When we focus on ourselves, our world contracts as our problems and preoccupations loom large.

LINC – Forgotten Patriots of the American Revolution
When:  Thursday, March 10th to Tuesday, April 5th, 2022
Where:  Google Classroom and Zoom
Instructor: John Staudt

The American Revolution brought something exceptional into the world, an entirely new kind of nation based on the idea that ordinary people have worth. Unfortunately, the story of this remarkable event has been sanitized into a myth that the Revolution was conducted by a bunch of stuffy middle-aged men in puffy shirts and buckled shoes.

In this course participants will explore the murkier side of America’s struggle for independence, which involved many different individuals and groups of people in a very complex, brutal, and agonizing experience. To understand the complexities of the Revolution, participants will learn about those who were critical to its success but are rarely discussed – the ordinary shopkeepers, mechanics, wives & daughters, and servants & slaves who took the law into their own hands and spilled into the streets; the war that won American independence was fought by those who had the least to lose. (8 CTLE Hours)

This course will be delivered through both synchronous online meetings via Zoom (4 hrs) from 6:00-7:00pm on Thursday, March 10th, 24th, 29th and Apr 5th and asynchronously. Asynchronous work will be posted on Google Classroom for independent completion (4 hrs).  Participants are required to have a personal Google account to access the course materials.  Please note: District approval is required for in-service credit.
