Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
I have a BA in Political Science with a concentration in Comparative Politics that required me to take a number of various political and historical classes on past and present civilizations around the world.  I also have a Masters of Education in Secondary Social Sciences (history, political science, etc.).  I am certified by the state of Alabama to teach social sciences for grades 7-12.  I have also taught US and World history for over four years and have researched both and politics for 22.
As learners are exploring the various events and people, homework will be assigned that is specific to the topic that was covered in class.  Learners can generally expect to spend about an hour a week on homework (in addition to watching the videos and completing optional activities), some assignments will require less of the student.  All assignments and activities are focused on supplementing the learner's understanding of the various civilizations is broken down into specific, manageable tasks.  
Paper Pen/Pencil Crayons/Markers/Colored Pencils Printer available to print out resources provided by teacher or access to digital documents. **If using hard copy print outs, a folder or binder is strongly suggested** ***For digital worksheets please see list of 'Materials' section for third party websites.

Learners will have the option of completing activities and posting them to the classroom. 

Learner assignments & activities will receive weekly feedback before students move on to the next task.  There are no set deadlines for this class.  I am happy to provide feedback on work whenever it is completed.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The study of US history deals with some sensitive topics in history such as Native Americans, Immigration, War, Imperialism and the Roaring 20's.

Learners will be introduced to multiple perspectives using peer-reviewed and scholarly sources.  Learners will be encouraged to engage in critical and reflective thinking on matters pertaining to the history of ancient conflicts, security issues, religion and economics. Discussion posts will be moderated, encouraged and closely monitored by the teacher from an unbiased and secular standpoint.

When applicable, viewpoints from marginalized groups will be explored.
