Each semester AHI also sponsors a continuing education course for adults, taught by AHI Resident Fellow David Frisk.  Past courses have included “Abraham Lincoln: Leader and Legend” and “Franklin Delano Roosevelt and Ronald Reagan: The Making of an American Century.” Each class session will begin with a lecture and proceed to a discussion. Teacher credit is available. High school and college students are also welcome.  Books and other required readings as well as snacks and refreshments will be provided free of charge. Dr. Frisk:  “As always in our classes, no particular viewpoint will be pushed and major controversies about the subject matter will be duly considered. Discussion in our classes is always lively, diverse, and informative—just as we want it.” MORE INFO >>
