By popular request... introducing, American Girl x Baking! This 3 day camp is an opportunity to learn about American Girl book character, Kirsten Larson while baking some fun treats. Each meeting, we will learn, chat, and bake! **This is an extended version of my one-time Kirsten class. I use the same materials/slides/information, just split into three days while adding some baking activities.*** In this three time class, I will introduce Kirsten from the American Girl book series. We...
This class is taught in English.
Students will learn different elements of American pioneering times using the American Girl "Kirsten" book series as a reference.
Hi there! My name is Mrs. Rodenbeck and I am a middle school history teacher! I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th, grade history for the past 5 years! Before that, I taught high school history. I absolutely LOVE learning about people from the past! I like understanding how people lived in different times in history. I studied anthropology in college. My goal as a kid was to be Indiana Jones! Archaeology and cultural anthropology are my favorite disciplines. I like to learn about what past peoples have built and how those things impact their culture. I’ve even done work for Chicago’s Field Museum since 2007. Now I work in the education department at the Field Museum with other teachers and bringing history topics into their classrooms. I love teaching about the American Girl books and their periods of time in history because I used to WORK at the American Girl store in Chicago. I worked there all throughout my college years. I loved American Girl when I was a kid and I loved it, even more, when I worked at the store in college! I hope that from this course, you can take some of my passion for history and for American Girl and get a little more excited about learning about other people. There are so many fun and exciting things to learn about! I can’t wait to share them with you!
There are some days within the camp where the students will need to cook their treats. Many of the items that we make will also need to be chilled in the refrigerator prior to eating.

2 hours 15 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Potential Hazards: Students will need to use the oven and mixer, oven, microwave, and stove-top during this baking camp. Even though students will be studying a historical time frame, we will not always be following historical methods of baking and/or recipes. This class is geared towards a 8-14-year-old audience, but parents are always welcomed to be close by. :) *** Although we will not be reading the Kirsten book series within the baking class, I always suggest reading the American Girl books. Please be advised that the Kirsten book series does present some culturally insensitive topics and terminology. As a trained anthropologist AND a licensed social studies and history teacher, I will (and always teach my students to) use correct terminology and culturally sensitive terms to be respectful to the particular people of study - even if that term is not what is used in the textbook/book. As a licensed history teacher, I also have many PD hours dedicated to cultural sensitivity and correct teachings when it comes to historical events that present cultural insensitivities. In all situations for each of the characters of study throughout the course, I will present all perspectives of all parties involved in the historical event that the character lives through. It is important to understand historical events from all lenses and perspectives in order to build empathy and understanding of all parties involved.
