Class Experience

- gain knowledge of conservation and threats to wildlife

- create their own final project to showcase their learning
I have a Bachelor's degree in Psychology, with a specialisation in counselling. In the past, I have worked in primary and high schools offering individual & group counselling, life skills courses, and psychometric testing. I am currently working in Youth Empowerment Services for local government. 

My interests lie in child development and mental health awareness. I have also always had a passion for wildlife & conservation and have done extensive research on all of my class topics. 
Each week there will be 2-4 extended learning options in the form of discussion posts, crafts, projects, experiments, research activities, games, and writing activities. Learners will be encouraged to participate in at least one, but potentially all, of the "homework" options in order to further learning, have fun, and increase class engagement. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Learners will have the option of completing several different activities at home. I will also be providing PDF handouts that can be printed for some of the activities.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class includes discussions about conservation status and poaching. There are also mentions of animals eating other animals. No graphic images are shown.
