Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(194)
In this class we will learn about the Renaissance Period and some notable figures from that time including, Joan of Arc, Michelangelo, Ponce de Leon, and Galileo! 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
The homework will be the reading of the weekly book and book related project to share in class.
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:
This class looks at Europe right after a very dark time in history, though we won't discuss the Black Death or plague often, it is mentioned a couple times. Also, each person studied in this class had some unique life experiences... some were not great. Joan of Arc was burned for her beliefs, Galileo was imprisoned for his findings, Christopher Columbus treated many Native Peoples unfairly, however, multiple perspectives will be shown in the books themselves and also through the teaching time in class. 

In class we might do a Kahoot, an online game. If we do, I will put a link in the meeting for learners to click on and they will be able to join a private game. They will NOT need an account or search the web. I am a verified Kahoot teacher. Slides will be shared during teaching times and they will be shared from my screen, and should we use YouTube, which isn't often, I will share my screen.
Renaissance Self-Fashioning: From More to Shakespeare, Leonardo da Vinci (Kenneth Clark), and Christopher Columbus: A Captivating Guide to the Life of an Italian Explorer and His Voyages to the Americas... are some of the books read to prepare for this class.
