Class Experience

US Grade 6 - 9
This class is taught in English.
I am a high school social studies teacher in a Title I school in NC. I have taken several workshops through UNC's Carolina K12 on Teaching Hard History and have read numerous articles from Teaching Tolerance (now Learning for Justice from the Southern Poverty Law Center) on Teaching Hard History. My school teaches the past while acknowledging biases that each individual comes pre-disposed to and the consequences of them.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
We will be discussing the expansion of the United States, which took land from Indigenous people and dealt with the issues of slavery and war. 
We will use sources from Khan Academy, Gilder Lehrman American History, Stanford History Education Group, History.com and National Geographic for class lecture information.
