Class Experience

Students will learn about different winter experiences throughout history from the perspective of American Girl dolls.
I am an elementary school Media Specialist with a bachelor's degree in history with an emphasis on American history.  My master's degree is in library and information science.  This degree trained me to teach students how to find and evaluate information found in literature.  I have taken graduate-level courses on diversity in literature and educating students from all backgrounds. I have also facilitated book studies with elementary and middle school-aged students that dealt with the topics discussed in the parental guidance section including race, discrimination, stereotypes, slavery, controversial representations, violence, and war.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
While it will not be directly taught in this class, there are sensitive topics within some of the American Girl books, including race, discrimination, stereotypes, slavery, controversial representations, violence, and war.  Parents should decide if they are comfortable with these topics.  Topics will be handled sensitively in an age-appropriate manner if they are brought up and students will be given ample space to share their thoughts and feelings around these topics.  As the teacher, I will provide historical context for their questions if they arise on a sensitive topic. Students should be respectful in their discussions and parents are welcome to reach out to me with any questions
This class will be based on stories and traditions from: 
Changes for Molly by Valerie Tripp
Changes for Samantha by Maxine Schur
Changes for Felicity by Valerie Tripp
Changes for Josefina by Valerie Tripp
