Class Experience

Students will learn about a variety of world history topics, ranging from many different time periods, areas, and cultures. They will have the chance to compare and contrast different historical events with each other and with fictional events, gaining a greater understanding of common themes and patterns in history. They will gain an appreciation of how history can inspire fiction. They will learn about the Star Wars universe in greater depth and appreciate what they watch more in the future.
I am a longstanding fan of the Star Wars franchise, having watched the films (Episodes I-IX, Rogue One, Solo) many times, along with the various TV series that have come out over the years (The Clone Wars, Rebels, and The Mandalorian). Discussing this amazing series is one of my favorite things to do!

With regards to the history element of this class, I have a Bachelor's Degree in History from a program which required a broad range of study in different historical periods and places. I also have a Certification in K-12 Social Studies Education from the State of NJ.
There will be no formal homework for this class. However, at the end of each class, I will announce the next week's topic, which will cover a certain Star Wars film or an episode from a TV series. Learners may want to watch what we will be covering in class so the material is fresh in their minds!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Star Wars is a series that contains violence, so discussion of it will naturally include some discussion of violence. While presented in a fun, sci-fi, good versus evil setting more appropriate for children, it still includes warfare, duels, political conspiracies, roguish characters, and tragic events. Any family that is comfortable with their children watching Star Wars should be comfortable with this class, as all historical discussion will remain on the level of sensitive material present within the films and TV shows.
