Class experience

US Grade 3 - 8
Learners will strengthen knowledge and skills needed in social studies to be successful and engaged learners in class
I have been teaching Middle School students for 13 years.  I've taught ELA, World History, Geography, and Civics.  I am currently teaching 7th and 8th grade American History and Civics in Chicago.  I hold a BA in Secondary Education.  I majored in History and minored in English.  I am certified for secondary teaching in the state of IL with endorsements in World History, American History, English, ELA and Geography.  I have had extensive training on sensitive topics, such as women's rights, slavery and racism through courses with the Field Museum, Facing History and Ourselves, and Street Law.
Whatever materials and curriculum used in classes
Pen or Pencil
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Some of the topics covered in history deal with controversial and sensitive topics, such as slavery.  All class discussions and activities are prepared at age-appropriate levels.  No graphic content is shared in class.
Disclaimer for Kahoot and Nearpod.  Students/Parents do not have to sign up for an account for either platform.  
****Kahoot does have an app that is very user friendly and the use of a second device (tablet, I-Pad, phone) is highly recommended. 
      students will get a join code, or if they are playing on the same device will get a link they can easily join with.
****Nearpod is easy to join. I will provide a link in the Zoom chat that students can click on.  They will provide a nickname and can 
      complete activities.
