Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
To learn all about how the election process works in America.  They will learn about two examples in history too.
Worked for a political TV station for 10 years including two election years.  Part of my job was to watch the House and Senate daily.  I went to New Hampshire for the primaries and two conventions.  Worked on a live daily show across the street from the Capitol and met many prominent political figures including four former Presidents.  I also worked on a few history series such as a President's and a Writer's Tour.  Later worked for a video company that produced video lectures on many subjects including political history.
Videos and lessons.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
I will do this upon request.
No live meetings, and maybe some time outside of class.
Nearpod and Kahoot are used which requires creating an account.  The Hamilton songs will be on slides and the bad words will be cut out and/or I will find clean versions of the songs.  Learners are allowed to have differing opinions about history and politics but it must be done in a respectful way.  Name-calling is not acceptable.  If this happens, I will give a warning and contact the parents.  Repeated name-calling after warnings can result in removal from the class.  
Nearpod, Kahoot, YouTube, C-SPAN, CNN, MSNBC, FOX, and Hamilton songs
