Description

Class Experience

Students will practice and perfect the following: 
listening in class to mini-lectures
note taking with handouts
reviewing notes 
giving answers in class based on notes
taking mini-informal quizzes using notes
learning new academic vocabulary:
                    archeological evidence
                    evidence based conjecture
                    hypothesis
                    ethnobotanists
learning not only history--but what historians do and the different kinds of history that cross disciplines
My desire is to hook learners on history, by presenting captivating people and relay how history from the past present us with an understanding of today.  As a college rhetoric instructor I've found that students will learn very challenging material if they are able to present to me what they already know and either challenge or build upon that knowledge. Moreover, I frame learning about history by teaching students how to become mini-academics and look at anecdotal evidence using some of the very basic skills a scientist or historian would use. Students will become active learners as they attempt to use these skills to figure out why people thought witches cast dangerous spells and hexes--and why they thought these spells worked.
Students are encouraged to continue filling out handouts at the end of class if they haven't been able to finish taking notes during class.  
Every day students will be provided with a handout that will help them to take notes. If they can, students should print out these handouts and have them ready for each class.
Each morning after the first day there is a quiz in which two teams compete for a daily team winner and an overall team winner for the week. Students can earn points for their team with each right answer they deliver from their notes.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
None. We will stay away from anything really graphic about witch burnings and viking violence.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
