Description

Class Experience

Students who participate in this class learn:
-World geography
-To compare/contrast cultures
-Basic knowledge of the history/culture of various countries
I am a CO-certified K-6 teacher with over 20 years of experience teaching social studies.  I have taught in a variety of environments, including homeschool, public, and private school settings.  I have also taught a variety of subjects for over 2 years on Outschool, including social studies.  I make every effort I can to include multiple perspectives and prevent broad generalizations of cultures past and present.  Students in my class are expected to participate in discussions with respect to the cultures we are studying.  
Students are assigned to look over a page or two in the National Geographic Kids World Atlas, as an optional homework activity.  They may share their findings in class.  
Upon enrollment you will receive a detailed supply list including activity supplies and book lists. One purchase you will need to make if you plan to have your student do the homework is the National Geographic Kids World Atlas, available on Amazon for about $13: https://amzn.to/3MZUQ3a Most other supplies include common art supplies, cooking ingredients, and office supplies.
I am always informally assessing students in class and adjusting my teaching based on their understandings.  
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some of the activities may require adult supervision, such as cooking and using scissors.  These activities may be completed outside of class if necessary.
