Class Experience

US Grade 7 - 10
To explore the lives of women and learn about the impact and contributions that they made on society. 
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.

I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism. 
Each week there will be a list of 3-7 discussion questions to answer, as well as a list of suggested homework (short research topics, short videos to watch, projects or interviews) that the student is to choose 1 from. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In week 8 we will learn about Mary Kenner, who patented the sanitary belt. Please be aware that we will learn a brief history about what products were being used at this time and why this was such a huge advancement for women. 

 This class will utilize Youtube videos for sharing of lecture videos, as well as supplemental lessons. All Youtube videos are embedded into the Outschool platform. This class may also utilize Kahoot. Learners will be given a direct link and game pin to play. 
Some of the sources used for this class are, but not limited to: 
National Geographic
Library of Congress
