Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of the history of the First World War, including what caused the war, the major events of the war, and the effects of the war.
I draw on my education and professional development as a historian and teacher in order to create a safe environment in which students can learn about difficult historical topics. My undergraduate degree is in history, focusing on American and European history. My first master's degree is in history, focusing on European and American history, and my second master's degree is in cultural heritage management, with a focus on interpreting difficult history to audiences of all ages.
Homework for this class includes doing short (~5 page) readings, completing any activities assigned for the week, writing responses to discussion questions, and doing the pre- and post-lesson quizzes.
All materials will be provided to students through the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students are assessed on their comprehension of the material through post-lesson quizzes. Students are also assessed on their responses to the discussion questions each week. Grading is available upon request.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class discusses the First World War, so it will necessarily involve discussion of violent events. I will show some pictures of the trenches, but will I avoid any particularly gruesome or disturbing images. Please be advised that some students might find this content upsetting.
