My background includes an AS in History (SOCIAL SCIENCEs), a BS in Elementary and Special Education, and Teacher’s Licensure for K-8 in Virginia. After having lived in the Middle East for several months, I have experienced first hand the conflict of religious belief/ worship and the political controversy which define stateless nations and their ongoing challenges. My under-graduate studies included a study of Islam in its varying degrees of worship as well as Middle Eastern History. Subsequently, my post-graduate study and additional training has been in cultural diversity and its subsequent effects on the classroom and communities of North America.
'Homework' is not required, but consists of reading/ perusing the reference text, working on suggested enrichment activities and preparation of a final presentation during the last class. For the reference text, the goal is familiarity and building connections to previous knowledge- try and peruse the content weekly and it will prepare your learner for our class discussion. No background knowledge is required. Time Commitment- Each week expect a ~20 minute PPT lecture, + supplemental videos for assigned work each week. Optional, but heavily encouraged enrichment activities and discussion topics would be an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week.
Comprehension of the content is assessed as we progress through the course via weekly connect and apply discussion questions/ narrations and suggested homework activities every week- including occasional presentations.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
