I have been a middle/high school Social Studies teacher for the last four years. I currently hold a 7-12 Social Studies teaching license in the state of Ohio and a Bachelor of Arts in History. I have covered Ancient Greece with my students over the past three years, and have refined these lessons to be very engaging and impactful.
Homework is always optional. I believe learners would benefit from implementing the information they learn in class, however, I also understand that each learner is unique. Learners will analyze primary source documents and answer comprehension questions based on a primary source.  These activities should not take more than one hour to complete
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be assessed informally in each class through verbal comprehension checks and class discussion. Each class will begin with a quick review of the activities from the previous week's class to ensure students understood the material. At the end of each unit, students will complete a Kahoot, which will act as an informal summative assessment of the unit.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
