This trial class is for anyone who might be interested in my year long US or World History courses but is hesitant to commit before knowing if my teaching style is a good fit. This one-time class is structured just like my year long classes so that students can get a taste of how I teach, what the assignments are like, and how in-class time flows. This is a great example for how my longer classes will run and should provide students with an idea of my teaching style. All of my classes,...
This class is taught in English.
Students will further their knowledge of the events of the Battle of Little Bighorn. Students will be able to analyze the primary sources we will be working with. Students will better understand how to compare the primary source we used to a secondary source to determine which sources are more reliable. Students will get a better idea of my teaching style to determine if my longer history courses would be a good fit for them.
My Masters degree is in American Studies and I spent a great deal of my graduate studies focusing on the Civil War, Westward Expansion, and the Industrial Revolution. I have been teaching both US and World History courses both off and on Outschool for several years. For this particular class I am relying on primary sources as my main source material but have studied this era in history during both my undergrad and grad courses, as well as in my own personal studies of United States History.
There will be no homework. All work will be completed inside the class meeting.
A pdf of all materials will be provided prior to class. Students should either print the pages out and bring to class or have the pdf pulled up on their computers during class so that they can fill the pages in.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
As with any US History course, we will be covering topics like death, war, and racism. I will not shy away from these topics, but will help the students understand that though racism, slavery, sexism, etc. are part of the fabric of American History, they are not acceptable by our standards today.
All materials are provided for students. We will be reading primary sources from Kate Bighead and J.D. Cameron.
