Class experience

US Grade 4 - 7
-Students will share their ideas and respond to the ideas of others in a way that allows for disagreement but still values the student’s perspective. 
-Students will learn different ways they can create a positive change in their community. 
-Students will see first-hand real-life examples about how to be a social justice advocate in their everyday lives. 
- Students will master the fundamental structures of the American government, and understand the relationships, strengths, and playbook of each branch of our federal government.
I  am a full-time teacher with 14 years of experience teaching civics and government with a professional certification in teaching Social Studies Education. I have a Master's Degree in Special Education from the Univesity of New England. I  have taught civics and government for 14 years in a public school! I  am an expert at presenting government in a non-partisan way and I  will always show the two sides of an issue if a kid brings up one side of an argument. 
Homework Offered
They will be creating the Padlets, worksheets, Flipgird, civic action project, and postcards independently.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
They will learn about non-violent forms of social justice such as protesting, voting, petitioning, boycotting, and registering to vote. We will read a short story designed for kids on the following people: Samuel Adams, Harriet Tubman, Susan B Anthony, Woody Guthrie, Rosa Parks, Ruby Bridges, Rachel Carson, Martin Luther King, Cesar Chavez and Dolores Huerta, Muhammad Ali, Tommie Smith and John Carlos, John Lennon and Yoko Ono, Gilbert Baker, Jazz Jennings, Colin Kapernick, America Ferrera, and Parkland Students.  We will also discuss parts of Harry Potter and how it connects to social justice. 
My one lesson is based off this book- Enough: 20 Protesters who changed America by Emily Easten. Introduce your young activist to America's most influential protesters in this lushly illustrated picture book. Stand beside contemporary groundbreakers like Colin Kaepernick and transgender teen Jazz Jennings, and march in the footsteps of historical revolutionaries such as Harriet Tubman and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. https://amzn.to/2CqeJBu

CLASS STYLE: My classes tend to be on the large side (8 to 18 students) and are lecture style and very engaging. This means that your child is not required to ask questions, read passages, or even have their camera on.  I do not coerce...
