Description

Class Experience

This advanced class will set the goal of better understanding how the major themes have unfolded on a chronological timeline of US history, while the class will go into detail into famous people and events, such as wars and specific dates considered to be turning points when necessary, the main goal is to better understand why those details are important in contributing the bigger picture. 
My undergraduate studies at Saint John's University included studies of American history and political science while my postgraduate studies in the History of International Relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science included academic courses and a written dissertation that required a rigorous analysis of the military and diplomatic history of the underlying causes of the two World Wars and the subsequent Cold War. In addition, I have taught a standard US history course to international students at Columbia College  in Northern Virginia. 
Homework will be assigned at every class, however most assignments will revolve around carefully reviewing the material from the previous class and following up for the future class by studying assigned materials such as graphics and/or documentary videos. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Since this is a serious complimentary course in American history, students will be informally assessed by means of a writing assignment to summarize the highlights of what they have learned in regard to each main topic of the course. 
9 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
History often times is shaped by forces such as war and conflict. In this class, a series of wars that have shaped US history will be studied and appropriate documentaries which include minimal representations of armed conflict will be reviewed. 
We will refer to a number of external articles from authoritative historical primary and secondary sources, maps which depict different periods of time and show how the geopolitics of the time drove the changes visible, as well as videos and documentaries from YouTube and Amazon Prime as well as other online tools to enhance the learning experience, including an AP test preparation book: 
Advanced Placement United States History by John M Schmalbach and John J Newman.
