Students will start by raising the flag just outside the school house and then move into the cloakroom, where daily procedures are discussed and a few period items viewed. Once seated in the desks general information about the life of 1880s Nebraska students and teachers are explained. The remainder of the class is taught in first person, as if the students were attending school in 1888. Students will study reading and arithmetic using reproduction textbooks and chalk slates, penmanship using nib pens and ink, geography viewing an 1888 reproduction map, history using pictures and paintings in the room and participate in a spelling bee. The class ends with the final bell, signaling a resumption of modern life, with just enough time for questions and answers.
