Description

Class Experience

Third Grade Social Studies is taught to the National Council for the Social Studies (U.S.) standards, covering history, economics, civics, and geography. Students begin to learn and practice analytic skills, consideration of multiple viewpoints and diverse backgrounds, intentional decisions about their communities and world, consideration of consequences of decisions, and relationships within society. They will also begin developing a foundation in U.S history and government, as well as world geography. 
I am currently enrolled in my final course through the Pace University-Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History master of arts in American history program. In addition, I have bachelor of arts degrees in English, journalism, and political science. I was the director of a social justice center for three years during which time I routinely taught about and facilitated conversations about historical and current political events for both teen and adults participants. I have been teaching history, social studies, and English Language Arts classes for the past five years. 
There is daily homework to be completed outside of class time. Homework includes reading and writing assignments, as well as worksheets and other learning projects. 
I will provide PDF readers for materials covered. Some projects will include making art so learners are encouraged to have general art supplies available such as markers, crayons, etc. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Weekly homework is assessed as follows for learners seeking a letter grade and letter of completion: 
Comprehension Quiz: 30 Percent 
Writing Assignment: 35 Percent
Project/Worksheet: 35
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As we study social studies, students may encounter descriptions and discussions of wars, colonization, disease, current events, and death. All subjects and topics will be covered in a manner that is as age-appropriate as possible, but some learners may be especially sensitive to these topics.
