Vertex Partnership Academies is excited to announce its partnership with Jane Kamensky.
In our commitment to provide world-class high school education for our students, Vertex Partnership Academies is excited to announce its partnership with Jane Kamensky, Trumbull Professor of American History at Harvard University and students from her Harvard College course about the American Revolution, History 1776, for support in creating our history curriculum!
At Vertex, students will take a two-part foundational US history course in the 9th and 10th grades preparing them for a 2-year IB History course taken in the 11th and 12th grades. This foundational course aims to develop key historical skills of analysis and argumentation, to teach a chronological understanding of the major events of US History, and to emphasize the multiplicity of perspectives, identities, and experiences that make up the history of the United States. Harvard students will work closely with Vertex Partnership Academies to develop resources centered on the American Revolution for use in this foundational history course. We are grateful for their partnership and contribution to our work.
