Description

Class Experience

Diving into and learning about Ancient China. Learners will also learn how to share and present projects and discuss ideas with peers.
I have been a teacher on Outschool since 2020 and I teach on 2 additional online platforms. I have a biology background, however, I studied US and World History for 3 years in college, as well as 2 years of Chinese. I have also trained in a non-credited format, for many years, with an author and speaker who specializes in teaching children character qualities. 

I have always enjoyed teaching. My first teaching position was in Moscow, Russia, teaching English as a second language. Since then, I’ve taught in various settings which include a cooperative, a preschool, and as a tutor in the areas of math, science, and English. I also am a homeschool mom!

I have taught this class to different groups at a cooperative, for both lower and upper elementary students. I enjoy teaching a subject or principle and including different areas of study along with the original idea. 
Reading of the weekly book and book based project. I will also send links and printables to aid in the experience. 
Students will need a copy of the book, which I will email a list to parents after enrollment. Books can be downloaded on a Kindle device instantly, purchased directly, or borrowed from the library. Students will also need supplies for their projects. Depending on what they want to do, most supplies will be on hand, such as paper, cardboard, glue, crayons, scissors... and if they'd like to just write a poem or build with legos... that is just as good!
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Building of the Great Wall involved quite a bit forced labor, this might be a new concept to some. Confucius, while not intending to create a religion, has a religion devoted to his ideas today. We don't dive into that idea, however, it is a mentioned in the book on him.

Should we use Kahoot, which is a game, learners will not need to have an account or browse online. I will give them a link to a private trivia style game that can be played by the class. I am a certified teacher on Kahoot. I seldom use actual YouTube in my academic classes, however, if done, I will screen share my screen... students will not be asked to visit YouTube. Slides shared in class are also done so by screen sharing.
