Education - Public, Independent, Homeschool

Nothing connects students more to our shared history or can better engage them with our past than a visit from a first-person historical presenter like Chris.  Ben was our most approachable Founding Father and his life was a model of values we all seek to encourage in our children: life-long learning, community service, ethical conduct, tolerance, civility and patriotism.  

Chris has brought Ben's life and values to students at all levels from coast-to-coast and abroad.  To bring our history alive, consider such a visit to your school, district, homeschool group or university. Chris's long dual career as in the classroom and on stage make him uniquely qualified to make such a visit solidly educational as well as entertaining.  Write Chris to inquire further.

Tight budget?  Consider “Tell Me, Ben Franklin…the Field Trip Without the Bus.”®, which Chris created to provide schools and homeschool parents with some of the benefits of an on-site visit at far less cost. Here, students will get a chance to question Ben in live time over the Internet; a new and exciting use of educational technology.  Click here for more information.
