Ladies and Gents, I am excited to offer you an entire semester of American History. First thing: This is not a "remember these dates and facts" type of history class. In this class we will be looking at big pictures! Students will enjoy learning about interesting accounts, people and places that make up the United States of America. I always say, I teach history the way you wish it were taught when you were in school. Also, this class is advertised as a two day per week class. However,...
Students will have a greater understanding of American History from pre-colonial to the Great Depression. Students will understand the biggest events and people throughout the time period. Students will be able to explain the significance of these events and people to America.
I am certified Social Studies and English Teacher.
There will be regular reading assignments. In addition, the asynchronous day will be offer adequate time for students to finish their weekly assignment.
Textbook: Fast Track: U.S. History ISBN: 0525570128 Digital or hardcopy is fine!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- Google Classroom
There will be a unit assessment at the end of each unit, so parents and students can track progress.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
History can be hairy. Some topics may be sensitive, but my training as a secondary educator will allow me to teach the subject at the appropriate level and detail for older students. Possible sensitive subjects may be, but not limited to, slavery, treatment of Native Americans, war and violence, and poverty during the Great Depression.
In addition to the textbook listed under supplies, we will use: 1. the NY Times 1916 Project for the Slavery Unit (free) 2. We will also use a variety of primary source documents, primarily from the library of congress to study history, so that students can hear and see the lives of individuals in their own words and witness events through their own eyes. 3. We will use https://nativeamericanheritagemonth.gov/for-teachers/ for the Native American unit (free) 3. Some of the primary sources documents are: https://www.loc.gov/item/2004633028/?loclr=blogtea https://memory.loc.gov/cgi-bin/ampage?collId=llsl&fileName=004/llsl004.db&recNum=458 https://www.loc.gov/item/usrep031515/?loclr=blogtea https://chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/lccn/sn83020866/1828-03-06/ed-1/seq-1/ https://www.loc.gov/resource/rbpe.21201600/?sp=1 https://www.loc.gov/exhibits/creating-the-united-states/convention-and-ratification.html#obj8?loclr=blogtea
