Description

Class Experience

I have a Bachelor’s in History 
Scavenger hunts each week with links directly to that parks page on the National Park website provided. There is no account needed to access this resource. 

Each week there may be a discussion about different aspects of the park. The discussion posts will be lead by me and I will post to keep them on track. 

Some weeks will also have a quiz, if no quiz there will be a worksheet to complete
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
The students will need to go on the National Parks website but there is no account required to access this website.
