The Bloody History Series is a course of history classes where each week students will learn about a popular cultural phenomenon during a certain period of time. In this class we'll examine witch lore and witch hunters in history, while looking at the reasons behind accusations of witchcraft. Were these accusations committed by people for political reasons, or where there scientific explanations for victims experiencing what they thought were hexes and spells? Every day students will have...
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
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.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
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.
3 hours 20 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 witches.
