In this 4-week **FLEX** class, students will learn about the events, topics, and characters mentioned in the American Girl historical book series. As a **FLEX** class, we will NOT meet live. This is a course with an asynchronous learning format, meaning that I will posted pre-recorded videos, engaging questions for students to answer, and directions for projects and activities for students to complete to engage students in learning about the topic. Although we will not be meeting live and...
This class is taught in English.
Hi there! My name is Mrs. Rodenbeck and I am a middle school history teacher! I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th, grade history for the past 7 years! Before that, I taught high school history. I absolutely LOVE learning about people from the past! I like understanding how people lived in different times in history. I studied anthropology in college. My goal as a kid was to be Indiana Jones! Archaeology and cultural anthropology are my favorite disciplines. I like to learn about what past peoples have built and how those things impact their culture. I’ve even done work for Chicago’s Field Museum since 2007. Now I work in the education department at the Field Museum with other teachers and bringing history topics into their classrooms. I love teaching about the American Girl books and their periods of time in history because I used to WORK at the American Girl store in Chicago. I worked there all throughout my college years. I loved American Girl when I was a kid and I loved it, even more, when I worked at the store in college! I hope that from my courses, you can take some of my passion for history and for American Girl and get a little more excited about learning about other people. There are so many fun and exciting things to learn about! I can’t wait to share them with you!
Materials for each week will be listed on the class feed the week prior.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Although we will not be reading the book series within the Flex class, I always suggest reading the American Girl books. Please be advised that some of the book series present historical events such war and battles. We will briefly mention these events, but will not get into the extreme details of the event as the class is designed to be a crafting class and will be an age-appropriate class. As a licensed history teacher, I also have many PD hours dedicated to cultural sensitivity and correct teachings when it comes to historical events that present cultural insensitivities. In all situations for each of the characters of study throughout the flex course, I will present all perspectives of all parties involved in the historical event that the character lives through. It is important to understand historical events from all lenses and perspectives in order to build empathy and understanding of all parties involved.
Although we will not be using the book series, I always suggest reading the books to each of my students. The historical information presented will be limited as this is not a history class - this is a crafting class. Teacher sources used for curriculum: Primary sources: I used a variety of primary sources to gather information (journals, interviews, letters, diary entries, and archive material) primary from the Smithsonian Institute (https://www.si.edu/researchers), and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History (https://www.gilderlehrman.org/history-resources). Secondary sources: Information will be referenced from my teacher textbook for American history using Prentice Hall's "America - This History Of Our Nation".
