Description

Class Experience

Students will be introduced to the Fantastical topic of Aliens (extraterrestrials), and will engage in an interactive discussion in which we investigate the various media and pop culture references/uses of aliens in written works, video games, movies, cartoons, and art. 
Students will be presented with what Science considers as “life”, and learners will be able to discuss if we were to find life out there, what types of life might it be. 
Varying viewpoints will be explored and discussed about this topic.
Students will interact and reflect with learners from around the globe regarding this intriguing topic.
I have always had a love of space, from the moment my grandpa, an amateur astronomer, let me look through the 10-foot telescope he built all by himself, to watching shuttles & satellites lift into the sky, and watching some fall back to the earth. I have spotted some of the largest dust storms to hit Mars, and have enjoyed looking at the various craters on our Moon and seeing the rings around Saturn, all from my own backyard in Missouri & while using other telescopes my grandpa built. I have never ceased my exploration and search, looking to the skies to watch for eclipses, comets, and so much more! My love of all things Space has only increased with time, and I feel it is the next great wave of the future! As a teacher with a Master’s Degree in Teaching & over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, and more than 6 years teaching students about Space as an amateur astronomer, as well as other Science-related subject-matter, I love sharing my knowledge with the next generation. My hope is to instill the awe-inspiring beauty the Unknown Universe holds, as well as encourage students to dream and believe! I hope to see you in class as we explore the Fantastical Aliens together!
There is no homework for this course, however, teacher will add additional videos, flyers, color pages, notes, and more in the Outschool classroom for those students who truly want to learn more.
Any learning materials needed will be available for download in the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no formal assessment for this class.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Learners will need their cameras turned on for each class. Parents may need to assist their child in learning how to "mute & unmute" themselves, as teacher will mute students at times during the "teaching" portion of our class & then ask them to "unmute" to answer questions & interact with the other learners during the interactive, conversational, and review portion of our class. This allows each learner the opportunity to hear what is taught, while still allowing for questions, and lots of interaction and such.
YouTube video clips will be shown at times during our class to allow learners to visualize the topics being covered. The links to these videos will be available after the class for parents & learners to view/review as desired.
