Homework
Frequency: included
Feedback: included
Details: 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
Assessment
Frequency: included
Details: 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.
Grading
Frequency: included
Details: Letter grades by request
All materials will be supplied by the teacher. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class uses Kahoot.
