Description

Class Experience

Students will develop an understanding of global geography, historic trade routes, political ties and colonization.

In each weekly class, students will learn key:
1. People
2. Places
3. Things

Over time, as pieces come together, they'll develop a tremendous bank of knowledge in the field of social studies. Please note, this class is deigned for kids ages 6-9. The goals are more modest in this class than they are in the same version of this class I teach for kids ages 10-14.

This is a true social studies course in how it is interdisciplinary. We cover geography, history, culture, religion, political structures, natural wonders and wildlife, foods. What would you want to do if you went to Rio de Janeiro or Tokyo or the Gobi Desert? These will be the things we talk about as we go to those places. Over time, the kids will be exposed to lots of different cultures, religions, political structures. They'll have a sense for where these places are in the world. They'll learn tips and clues for finding different places on a map.

Additionally, a goal with this class is to inspire a love for different places and cultures around the world and to encourage a curiosity to explore and learn about the world.
We live in a big and fascinating world and one of my goals with my classes is to help kids develop an interest and appreciation for the world around them and different cultures. My classes draw from my own experiences as a world traveler. I've visited and lived abroad in seventeen countries. Much of what we do in my classes is the same type of research I would do on a destination before I would travel to that country. I'm also the former deputy director of the historic home of President Ronald Reagan and in 2010 was a candidate for United States Congress.
There is no homework required. However, I do provide worksheets that students can use to fill in during class. These are great for work samples for students who have required work samples for charter schools. I also provide additional notes after class for students to go deeper on their own.
I provide a worksheet before class that students can fill in as we go along. I also provide additional notes after class with more information and links to related articles and videos.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Parents looking for materials to submit as work assignments are always happy with the materials I provide.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Parents, please note that this class is designed for kids ages 6-9. This is a 30 minute class. I teach this same class for older kids, ages 10-14 and that class is 55 minutes long and goes a little deeper. You're welcome to choose whatever class you think is right for your learner -- I just want you to be aware of the differentiation.
