In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class discusses a military conflict. There will be mentions of killing and death. In the war for American Independence, there were political winners and losers, but these will be explained only from the political viewpoint of the colonists and the British military. It would be impossible to teach about this political conflict without discussing the key role that women, enslaved African Americans, and people of the Iroquois Confederacy participated in the war. No one group will be celebrated or disparaged during this class. If a learner would like to find out more about any one group, I would be glad to forward links and recommendations for additional resources. 

I provide learners with links to review games on Kahoot! and Blooklet-these are private links for the class section that your learner is taking and not for class sections before or after. The links expire and no registration is required on either platform.
Google Docs will be shared from my drive for review of extra class content and any additional weekly lesson instructions or homework. 
Canva and YouTube will be where class videos are posted and direct links to only the class videos are posted in the weekly lesson.  I occasionally post YouTube links directly onto the classroom page so learners can rewatch specific videos after class.
