"Just an FYI, I'm addicted to Mr. Zehnder's North American History Class . . . and I'm the parent! :) I haven't had a chance to check out my son's Lit. Class on Dante, but he seems to like it. This is our
first time with Homeschool Connections and it definitely won't be our last."
"I highly recommend Mr. Z's American History Course. He is a great teacher. My kids enjoyed him and they LEARNED so much. I loved learning new things right along with them. The text is written more like a novel than the old boring history texts. I can not say enough about this course other than if you have a high school student who needs an American History Course, don't hesitate to sign up for this one. It is worth every penny!"
