Student need a copy of Little House in the Big Woods to begin their reading BEFORE CLASS! This can be an ebook, library book or their own copy. The audiobooks are also excellent, although I highly recommend students have a book.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
These books take place in the late 1800's and early 1900's and discuss themes and practices that were common for the Ingalls family in that time period..... hunting, raising animals for food, and religious practices such as Christmas, reading the Bible, strict obedience to parents, and keeping the Sabbath.

Although no mention is made in this book, this series requires critical analysis and the following areas of concern will be addressed in class: inaccurate descriptions of historical events, racism, stereotypes, cultural inaccuracies, harmful and inaccurate descriptions of Native Americans, racist/stereotypical imagery, and biased perspectives. 

Teacher Carol has a PhD in pedagogy and history, with a Master’s in Cultural Studies. One of my  core values is to teach the true and accurate version of history I was not taught as a child. Racism or racial stereotypes is never acceptable to me, and neither is a white-washed version of American History.
