Class Experience

Students will use historical thinking concepts to analyze Canadian history.
Students will be able to understand the key events which shaped Canadian society. 
I have a degree in History and I am a certified teacher in the province of Ontario, Canada. I am qualified to teach intermediate and senior divisions of History.  I have specifically studied Canadian history from pre-contact to the 20th century. My lessons will be factually based using a variety of trusted sources that I have acquired through my research. 
Here are some specific areas of study that I have completed: Colonial Canada, Post-Confederation Canada, Money and Power in the Atlantic World, 1400-1850; Native-Newcomer Relations in Canada
Each week at the end of class, students will be given a weekly task to complete before the next class. Each task should take students approximately 30 minutes to complete.

Types of tasks:
Exit Tickets: Google Form questionnaire  
Short Videos and Handouts
Short Readings
Interview Task 
Write a Letter 
Students are encouraged to take notes if that helps their learning. Worksheets to help students follow along with the lessons will also be provided prior to each class which students can either print or have open on another device.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will be given a percentage grade at the end of the course which will be a reflection of their weekly tasks. 
A Google Doc will be shared with the class which will help students track their progress in completing weekly tasks to ensure they do not fall behind with the work. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course will at times deal with sensitive matters such as wars, colonization and the wrongful treatment of Indigenous peoples, and other material that is relevant to Canadian history. To help students understand these difficult topics, I will be using first-hand accounts when possible to help tell the stories of those impacted by these events.
