Welcome to the Worldview Historical Ball 2020
Nicholas has been enjoying his homeschool Worldview Class. The class meets once a week for 3 hours and then the students have a heavy workload at home. The program teaches core History, English (literature & composition), Bible, Speech, and Debate.
They also meet for an additional hour and a half each week to learn ballroom dancing. The highlight of the year is the annual Worldview Historical Ball which takes place at a ballroom at a local hotel and includes a formal dinner. This year's theme was a Victorian Masquerade Ball taking place in London at Buckingham Palace between the years 1860 and 1899. Each student was required to research and recreate a historical character that actually lived during this time period and could have possibly attended the Ball. The character had to be between the ages of 15 and 90 at the time of the Ball. All students had to research a character and write a one-page biography of their character that included an explanation as to why they chose the character.
Nicholas has been enjoying learning about electrical engineering so he chose Michael Faraday, the father of electricity, as his character.
