Class Experience

US Grade 7 - 10
This class is taught in English.
I am a teacher of social studies. I have taught American History for 6 years. I have also learned from Teaching Tolerance and Carolina K12 at UNC how to teach "hard history"; this includes teaching history of marginalized historical groups. I  also had a Carolina K12/University of NC fellowship in oral history concerning Civil Rights. I have worked with marginalized people groups as well.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Those in history affected by the abomination of slavery will be treated with the utmost respect. I never refer to "slaves". I used the term "enslaved people" because they were people above all and slavery was something that happened to them. 
When we discuss immigration, we will be looking at it from a historical perspective. We will NOT be engaging in a debate on current policy.
We are also discussing 4 wars- Mexican American War, the Civil War and World Wars 1 and 2.
