Laura is teaching school, and it's terrifying! Most of the students are taller than she is, and she must sleep away from home for the first time. Laura is miserable, but the money is needed to keep Mary in a college for the blind. And every Friday - no matter what the weather - Almanzo Wilder arrives to take Laura home to her family for the weekend. Laura and Almanzo are courting, and even though she's not yet sixteen, she knows that this is a time for new beginnings. In this multi-day...
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.

Student need a copy of These Happy Golden Years 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 not present in this book, topics are mentioned throughout this series require 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. This book does provide excellent conversation points, as the Ingalls family experience a paradigm shift over time throughout the story. We will discuss all of this throughout the class.
