Students will know more about a foundational person and story from each of the listed nations. Students will practice how to glean useful tips for life from historical people and events.
I produce a podcast "Founders of Nations" which is the podcast version of this classes material. 15-20 hours were spent on interviews, research and study to make the information and plan for each nation. I have a Master's Degree in Education and have been a history buff since I was in Middle School. I have been teaching and tutoring since 2004 and love to help students broaden their horizons by learning about different nations and cultures around the world.
Students will only need something to take notes with so they can think about the question and write notes about their answers.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
