Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
By the end of this course learners will have encountered influential people like Florence Nightingale, Alfred Lord Tennyson, Napoleon Bonaparte, and Tsar Alexander II. They will see how these people shaped the Crimean war through their personal beliefs and attitudes. We will look at leading personalities and international laws that led to the war's outbreak. We will see the new technologies that changed the ways battles were fought, and the role of the press in swaying national opinion. Finally, we will set the stage for the First World War. 
I have a BA in History and Government and Political Philosophy, and am pursing an MA in International Relations. My thesis examined Soviet espionage in the United States during World War II, the Communist Party of the United States, and McCarthyism. I have taught several sections of "Friday Spy Day" which discusses Soviet espionage in the United States, in addition to teaching courses in intelligence history, the Russian Revolution, World War II, and the Holocaust. 
Homework is not required for this course. Learners who are interested in learning more may refer to the "Further Learning" list posted on the classroom page. This list will include books, documentaries, and primary sources the course is based on. Students may also review what they've learned through online kahoot games. (Link to kahoot will be posted on the classroom page.) 
Any required materials such as Kahoot games and "Further Learning" lists will be provided by the teacher and posted to the classroom page. Learners will need access youtube in order to watch lecture videos. Direct links to the lecture videos will be posted to the classroom page.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This course discusses topics such as war and international relations. Learners should be comfortable discussing and examining topics such as war technologies/ weapons, battle strategies, and bodily wounds. We will not go into intense details, but we will be discussing how this war impacted those involved, and new technologies and weapons certainly impacted them. This class is designed as an AP History course and is intended for mature students looking to learn more about Russian and Eastern European history. Learners with a strong understanding of European history and geography are encouraged to enroll. 

Learners under 14 years old are welcome to join, but they will need their guardian's permission sent to me before they will be allowed to enter the course. If your learner is under 14, please send me a message acknowledging your learner's enrollment. If I do not receive your permission, they will not be allowed to attend classes and may be unenrolled. 
Information presented in this course draws heavily on the book "The Crimean War: A History" by historian Orlando Figes. Students do not need to read the book in order to take this course.
