Vermont History and the Identity of the Northeast Kingdom

Credits: 1

If history focuses on understanding our place in the world, then history starts in our own backyard. Vermont and the Northeast Kingdom share a long and storied history. Students will learn local history from primary sources, and the award-winning book, Hands on the Land, which will serve as a supplementary text. Students will participate in a variety of learning experiences, including field trips, investigation of primary sources, and self-directed research projects.
