Class Experience

  • Students will learn more about the historical time frame in which the character from the book lived by baking an easy and fun dish from the book.
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 5 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 love to learn all about the historical times that the different dolls lived in and I love doing hands-on learning! I can't wait to have a fun time learning with you!

Potential Hazards: Students will need to use a knife, blender, stovetop, and microwave during this baking camp. 

Even though students will be studying a historical time frame, we will not always be following historical methods of baking and/or recipes. This class is geared towards a 9-13-year-old audience, but parents are always welcomed to be close by. :)
