In this class, we will take a look at the history of each state: Who settled it? When and how did it join the Union? What important events happened there and who came from there? What is it most known for today? We will explore the culture of each state and what sets it apart. My goal with this class is to cover more than the state tree, flower, and motto. I want students to discover and learn which state has a State Park that has the only diamond mine in the world that is open to the public,...
Students will get a broader view of American History through an in-depth look at each States history.
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions. I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills, learner experience, and knowledge. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism.
