Class Experience

Students will learn about the fascinating stories that focus on these famous shipwrecks.
I am a qualified and certified teacher with my teaching certification for intermediate and senior divisions in geography and history. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, we will be discussing shipwrecks that involve deaths. Any information regarding those deaths will be censored to be age-appropriate to ensure nothing overly graphic is shared. 

Students will also be using the website 'Kahoot' during this class. Students do not need to download anything in advance. A link will be shared during class using the Zoom chat which will take students directly to Kahoot. Students will enter their first name or a nickname to play. No personal information will be needed to access the website.
