We will learn early American history, including the Boston Tea Party, the Declaration of Independence, and about some key figures like Revere, Franklin, and Washington. This class is a great addition to homeschool or in-school curriculum.

I have been a teacher on Outschool since 2020 and I teach on 2 additional online platforms. I have a biology background, however, I studied US and World History for 3 years in college, as well as 2 years of Chinese. I have also trained in a non-credited format, for many years, with an author and speaker who specializes in teaching children character qualities. 

I have always enjoyed teaching. My first teaching position was in Moscow, Russia, teaching English as a second language. Since then, I’ve taught in various settings which include a cooperative, a preschool, and as a tutor in the areas of math, science, and English. I also am a homeschool mom!

I have taught this class to different groups at a cooperative, for both lower and upper elementary students. I enjoy teaching a subject or principle and including different areas of study along with the original idea. 
Homework Offered
Reading of the weekly book and book based project. I will also send links and printables to aid in the experience.
2 - 4 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
I generally do not "grade" but if parents do want something more formal, I am willing to do so with prior notice.
Grades Offered
Students will need a copy of the book though it doesn't have to be present during class... for those that might need to return library books prior to class, no worries. I would recommend using post-it notes for learners to take down ideas while reading. This makes it easier to share thoughts in class. I would also recommend having a notebook and pencil handy for other note taking during class. I do not focus on learners taking notes but if they would like to remember something, having those items makes it easier.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
History is full of things that can be unpleasant. During our reading we will learn about things like war, slavery, illness, but we will also see how people overcame much of this, and we will learn how not to repeat the mistakes made in the past. This is a safe environment to learn in and a great place to express our feelings about events of the past. 
We refer to the Constitution (including Bill of Rights) and the Declaration quite a bit during this class.
