Description

Class Experience

Students will:
❖ Learn the history of the World War II Memorial in Washington, DC
❖ Learn basic information about World War II
❖ Learn a few signs in ASL related to course content
My excitement about American symbols began with travels to Washington, DC. I loved stepping onto the exact spot Martin Luther King Jr. stood for his iconic I Have a Dream speech on the steps on the Lincoln Memorial. Walking through the White House thrilled me as I imagined the historic individuals who had walked its halls. I have enthusiastically taught many learners about Washington, DC through books, music, and plays. I'm so excited to share American symbols with Outschool students!

I am a teacher certified to teach elementary grades 1-6 and deaf/HH students pre-K-12. I worked as an educational interpreter for several years and as an elementary teacher for many years. My education and work experience have provided the skills to teach American Sign Language and American History to learners on Outschool.
❖ One piece of paper
❖ Pencil
❖ Black Sharpie or other black marker

1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
* Note: I will briefly touch on parts of the war, including the rise of Adolf Hitler, the Holocaust, Pearl Harbor, D-Day, Allies & Axis nations, and the atomic bomb.
