Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I’ve lived and worked in Antarctica for two summer seasons at a science research station.  I’m passionate about the Icy Continent, and am happy to share my first-hand knowledge and experience with learners in my courses and answer as many questions as I can.  In addition to sharing my personal experiences, several of my courses draw on expert knowledge in Antarctic science, history, and logistics from people I met while working there.  This extensive set of educational resources developed by science researchers and Antarctic logistics specialists gives learners a first-hand look at real scientific research being conducted in one of the most remote environments on the planet, along with the logistics that help support scientific discovery. I look forward to sharing Antarctica with your learner.

Prior to working in Antarctica, I taught World Geography in Alaska for 10 years.  Antarctica was always my favorite unit to teach!  My courses also draw on materials I’ve used in the classroom to teach about the Icy Continent. 
 1 file available upon enrollment
Learners will need a pencil, pen, colored pencils/crayons, and the worksheet (attached in welcome message) or a notebook for class. For all keen learners (Antarctic Explorers) who take Antarctic-themed classes with me regularly, I highly recommend a dedicated notebook or binder for Antarctica.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
