New Mexico History
with Wes Koerner
New Mexico History and Geography Seminar. This is a survey course of the historical, political, economic, social, cultural, religious and geographic features of New Mexico. The focus of classwork will be lectures, note-taking, and discussion of New Mexico's colorful history and geography, especially the story of New Mexicans from prehistory to the present.
In order for parents to be able to modify the class to meet the needs of multi-age or multi-skill level students, required work will be minimal; mostly students will be expected to do some reading or other research to be able to join the discussion. However, optional assignments will be provided to parents to allow for parent discretion in modifying the class for their particular student, including textbook reading with review work, suggested readings from historical or literary works, term papers or presentations, and for younger students modeling and poster projects. In order to receive high school credit a student should demonstrate an understanding of how the aspects of New Mexico's History contribute to or are reflected in issues today.
