Description

Class Experience

Students will gain an in depth understanding of life in the Stone Age and Ancient Mesopotamia. 
I have been teaching both World History and American History to Middle Schoolers and Elementary aged kids for about 6 years now. History is my passion and I have traveled the world, visiting many ancient and neolithic sites, studying and working with local historians, and writing. I have worked with archivists and read hundreds of first hand accounts of war, famine, and every day experiences of the old ways of life from baking bread to making soap. It has also been my ongoing education to voraciously read history books, both of ancient history, and most importantly, newly written historical commentaries that look at and analyze our previously written histories with an intention to decolonize the way we view history. I have lived off and on oversees for the past 25 years in a country that is still currently under occupation, therefore I have a unique insight into the importance of telling history from different angles and an understanding of the importance of more than one story being expressed.
At the end of the first class of the week, students will be assigned homework that will be due by the second class of the week. These assignments will call on students to think about what they have learned, possibly seek out new information, or even complete a challenge. Homework time will vary from 1/2 hour per week to 1 hour per week.
Stone Age Cave Art: Large piece of brown paper- possibly a cut grocery bag, and either paint, chalk pastels, or oil pastels Stonehenge Model: Air Dry Gray Clay, A piece of cardboard, green paint, glue Ziggurat Model: Materials of choice- options include Air Dry Terra Cotta Clay, plastic building blocks, cardboard and glue, online building block software (I will share a link), or Minecraft oil lamp- air dry terra cotta clay Map- dough in blue, green, and yellow, toothpicks, paper, and glue for labels.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learners will be assessed by participation, homework, discussion, and projects.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
