Description

Class Experience

- sharing thoughts and insights
- building vocabulary
- knowledge of historical people and events
- exploring the characters, geographic locations, and time in history
I have 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. 
Please read the book BEFORE class! 
Books are available in libraries everywhere, as Kindle Books, and some are even on Audible. Parents can co-read or read aloud for early or struggling readers. Please come to book club ready to discuss!
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
It is always my recommendation that parents pre screen the books beforehand. Although these are biographies for children, there may be events that your particular student isn’t ready for yet. In book club, I will guide conversations of any sensitive topics with empathy, consideration, truth, and grace.

To provide a well-rounded perspective for discussions, I will be referencing The American Revolution: A Visual History by The Smithsonian, as well as Flight: The Complete History of Aviation, also by the Smithsonian. We will also take a look at the Declaration of Independence, a book of Washington’s letters, as well as excerpts of articles from issues of the Journal of American History published by Oxford University Press.
As other topics arise, I will reference other sources and actual historical documents, as suit our topics.
