Aloha Parents & Students!

I'm Dan Lewer. A teacher, author, & curriculum developer.

"We study history to learn from the past, understand the present, and build a better future."

For over 13 years I have taught history to students here in Hawai'i where I live and I absolutely love teaching and working with students. In 2020, I was awarded the Hawai'i History Teacher of the Year award for my empowering lessons and ability to excite students about history.

I love working with students- challenging them to grapple with big questions, helping them develop a passion for learning, and becoming better people in the process.

Without a doubt, teaching is my calling. 

I taught for eleven years at a beautiful little, rural, title-1 school on the Big Island of Hawai'i. My students came from different backgrounds and were at such academic levels- from high flyers to struggling learners.

My AP US History students often earned some of the highest scores in the entire state. But I also taught Special-Ed, English Language Learners, and gifted and talented students - sometimes all at once! It was rough at times, but it helped me developed strategies that could both challenge students and ensure even the struggling learners could be successful. 

My teaching philosophy is that learning should be engaging and relevant for students while striking a balance between fun and rigorous.¬†I know that if I am passionate about the subject and excited¬†to teach it, students¬†will enjoy learning a heck of a lot more.¬†ūüĎ䬆

Two years ago, I made one of the hardest decisions of my life when I left the classroom. I began working full-time on my business to create resources for teachers, students, and homeschool parents. I developed a history curriculum that would have excited me as a student. Thats not just drill-and-kill lectures you find on youtube but educational videos taught through the power of story in a way to students to understand and remember!

My History For Humans education videos are being used in thousands of classrooms around the country and by hundreds of homeschool parents as well.

You can check out any of my videos on youtube for free like this one on "Surviving Jamestown." However, if you purchase this course, all videos are hosted right here in the course and your child won't need youtube at all. And we don't mine or sell your data.

This self-paced homeschool US History course is a new project I am launching designed especially for homeschool families like yours.¬†Every aspect of it has been¬†developed to help students and parents be¬†successful and so that learning is stress-free, and enjoyable- as it should be! ūüėĀ

And if you are not satisfied with it, you can receive a full refund, no questions asked. One simple email within one month of your purchase and you will get a full refund. 

Because your child deserves a curriculum that fits the needs of your family and a teacher that excites them to learn everyday!

Lastly, as a history teacher, I firmly believe that teachers should not tell students what to think but teach the content & skills in a way so that students learn how to think. In history class, students should wrestle with big ideas and be empowered to develop their own opinions. This course will teach the amazing parts of US history but also covers heavier topics like slavery and relations with Native Americans in an age appropriate manner.
