Teaching the Civil War class on line has been made a lot easier given the wealth of digital resources provided by the American Battlefield Trust. Their IN4 videos, four minute videos that cover a wide range of topics on the Civil War have been perfect to align with student reading of the Pulitzer Prize winning book BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM by James McPherson.
While teaching online I have had GREAT success with the high school Civil War class using the tremendous digital resources from the American Battlefield Trust. We've been watch a good number of their IN4 videos which cover different topics of the Civil War that align perfectly with the students reading of James McPherson's Pulitzer Prize winning, BATTLE CRY OF FREEDOM.
SO glad you changed the school's name!

SUMMER SESSION 2: Experience Dune with the Best of Ashburn’s #1 Teacher. Dune is one of the great science fiction novels. Written in 1965, it predicted the coming Energy Crisis of the 1970s and the rise of Jihadist Fundamentalism. In the Dune universe, there are no computers. Instead, castes of humans are each enhanced with different powers: calculation and memorization, reading and manipulation of others, foretelling the future, racial and genetic engineering. All of these powers depend on a single drug, which comes from only one planet: Dune. Register Today! https://www.loudounschool.org/summer2020

TEACHER SPOTLIGHT: Dr Kevin Oliveau
Voted #1 Teacher - Best of Ashburn 2020!

Kevin’s passion in life is to learn how everything works. He received both a BS in Computer Science and a PhD in Political Science from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT).
Kevin’s distinguished professional background reflects a robust and interdisciplinary intellectual curiosity. He worked as a micro-coder at Thinking Machines, a super computer manufacturer, where he was awarded a patent for using floating-point chip support hardware to route messages between 65,000 processors. He was the fifth employee hired at WAIS Inc., one of the first companies to create searchable websites, which was bought by America Online (AOL). Kevin also founded and built Catoctin Creek Village, a cohousing subdivision in Northern Virginia. (He holds a Class-A Builder’s License).

Kevin is intrigued by global politics, war gaming, movies, history, philosophy, technology, comic books, and economics. Teaching at the Loudoun School for Advanced Studies allows him to share his love of learning. He gets a tremendous boost from the energy and enthusiasm the students bring to his classroom. When a student corrects him, or shows him something he doesn’t know, he’s absolutely thrilled.

BEST TEACHER: Our very own Dr. Kevin Oliveau was voted Best of Ashburn 2020! Thanks everyone for your support!

We WON Best Private School! Thanks to all the students and families who voted for us. - Best of Ashburn 2020!
