I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions. I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism.
For each class/state, there will be 3-5 homework options given. These could be to watch a film, write a short 2-3 paragraph paper, or create something. All homework assignments will be due on Sunday of each week. If there are more than 2 learners enrolled in the class, there will be a group project to create something (video, poster, pamphlet) marketing travel to the state.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will be discussing treatment of Native Americans and African Americans throughout American history. All discussions will be handled in an age appropriate manner. This class uses Youtube videos embedded into the Outschool classroom to share class lectures.
