I am certified to teach history, anthropology/culture, and social studies to students grades K-8. I have taught these subjects for over 5 years including units on indigenous peoples, and have extensive knowledge in the subjects of history and social studies. I believe that it is extremely important for children to learn about diverse cultures and to broaden their world view. In all of my history and anthropology lessons, all cultures are always presented in an unbiased, non-stereotypical light, showcasing multiple viewpoints.
Homework OfferedNear the end of each class, we will begin an art project tied to the history of the movie to help students remember what they learned. Learners may finish their project after each week's class if they so choose.
0Easily accessible art supplies will be needed each week. Most projects allow flexibility for what you have available including colored pencils, markers, crayons, or water color paints. Blank paper will also be needed, however I will often include printable templates that students can choose to use to help them with the foundation of their art piece.

I believe it is important for children to learn the true history behind the events and groups of people portrayed in the movies they watch. In all of my history and anthropology lessons, all cultures are always presented in an unbiased, non-stereotypical light, showcasing multiple viewpoints. -Several Disney movies depict battles, wars, and other heavy topics. We will discuss the history of these battles and times in history in an age appropriate manner, while still staying true to history.
