This course will cover moments in history that directly relate to the story of Rebecca Rubin. Rebecca is a Russian-Jewish immigrant living in New York in the early 1900s. This course will look at Urban development in the 1910s, and answer the question why are the 1910s the largest period in US immigration? The Progressive movement will be the largest focus of this course, including women's suffrage, the fight for labor rights, and the growth of working women with the start of WWI in 1914....
This class is taught in English.
Students will leave the course understanding the Progressive Era, why the early 1900s were the largest period of immigration in the US, and what constraints immigrants faced in the US, in light of the beginning of WWI.
In my work for my history major, I have taken multiple college-level courses covering these history topics, as well as courses in the experiences of marginalized groups that have provided me with an understanding of these groups' experiences and the historical context for American discirminatory action and thoughts. I am here to provide a historical outlook and provide insight into what was happening in history, but am not here to provide an in-depth look at discrimination or the experiences of marginalized groups.
I will supply a fill-in-the-blank style handout ahead of class. This handout will feature blanks that can be found throughout the PowerPoint and is a great tool to help students remain engaged throughout the lesson as well as retain information to be shared with parents, friends, and family after the course. The worksheet will be emailed the day before class, please look it over and use your discretion to decide if it would be a helpful tool for your student.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This course will discuss moments in history that saw significant Xenophobia, nativism, and racism, as well as the beginning of WWI. This course will not go into any details of the war or battles, but the topics covered can be heavy. The course will maintain a light and educational environment, but students may need more at home discussion about the discrimination discussed in the course.
The class will use a PowerPoint and worksheet, both created by myself, based on the American Girl Rebecca books, and my university coursework with twentieth-century US historians.
Sparking creativity and curiosity one class at a time.
