Imparting a classical education at home. Check out the Edwards Academy.

Psalm 78
. . . we will tell the next generation the praiseworthy deeds of the LORD, his power, and the wonders he has done. .
so the next generation would know them . . . and they in turn would tell their children.
Then they would put their trust in God and would not forget his deeds but would keep his commands.

John Brown

Kansas History Students:

For your John Brown report I especially recommend the PBS links at right. You will find a clear timeline, a wonderful interactive map, and an interesting summary of John Brown's life. Also, the Wikipedia entry will give you a full account of John Brown.

Be sure to look at the picture of the John Brown mural that covers one wall in the Kansas capitol. This mural is reproduced in Harper's Ferry (see link). The artist John Steuart Curry painted Kansas scenes in our Capitol building, including this giant depiction of John Brown. He is shown holding a "Beecher's Bible" and a Bible.

Be sure to begin your report by using the clustering worksheet or the paragraph planning sheet. You will need to turn these in with your final report.

Don't forget about your symbols!
