Description

Class Experience

I taught this as a unit for three grade 9s while doing my practicum as part of a B.Ed. After Degree. The students in those grade 9s loved it, and learned economics and government much faster than usually. I presented on the experiences at this conference for teachers and instructors using game-based learning.

Further, as a Ph.D. in political science, I have taught many courses in Political Science 101, as well as at higher university level as an adjunct professor at the Universities of Alberta and Calgary and now at St. Thomas University in New Brunswick, Canada.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
2 hours per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This is a class on economics, scarcity and politics. As such, it may involve politically sensitive topics, as politics is inherently touching on subjects that people get very animated by. One of the points of this class is to help learners deal with that in a civil manner.
