I have designed this course as a college preparatory class. We will learn about the physical, political, and cultural geography of multiple continents worldwide. I have dedicated many hours and designed the curriculum to meet the Massachusetts Department of Education High School Standards for College Readiness and Career Success. Massachusetts is the #1 ranked state in the country for educational success in high school and higher education. I love to make classes fun and engaging...
- Students develop skills in: -critical thinking, -spatial recognition, -cartography, -understanding scientific and statistical data, -cultural education and sensitivity, -people skills, -APA formatting, -writing a college-level midterm paper, -studying and preparing for a test -performing well and controlling anxiety during a timed test.
I have the credentials to teach social studies and science in any grade. I have a degree in math and one in science. I am furthering my education by obtaining a third specialty in education at MSU. I have taken World History 1, Western Civilization, World Geography, Psychology, and Human Growth and Development classes that have given me the skills to present sensitive topics respectfully and educationally. I have taught high school students globally in these subjects for many years and have led many class discussions about sensitive issues. I have lots of experience controlling a classroom environment in a way where every student feels heard but understands that they must maintain respect and an open mind. I have taught History, Social Studies, Biology 1, 2, Earth Science, and Geography in high school. I have also assisted and overseen students during STEM competitions.
Students will fill out homework I provide weekly that will introduce new study tools they can use to prepare for quizzes and tests.
Students will need colored pencils, a pen or No. 2 pencil, and a notebook.
- Every week, I will give a quiz on the physical landmarks of the previously covered areas. - Every three weeks, I will give students a timed test covering the geographical regions we have covered. - Students can choose from a list of topics to write about in a midterm research paper. - We will have a final at the end of the semester that includes questions about every region we cover. - Students are not allowed to take tests outside of class time. If they miss a day, we will need to set up a time for them to retake the test.
2 hours 45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
https://youtu.be/PdxPCeWw75k -This video is entitled "Hyeonseo Lee: My escape from North Korea | TED." It contains a heartbreaking true story about a woman's escape from the Country of North Korea during the famine that plagued the citizens of that country in the 1990s. It contains pictures of starving people and is intended to be shown to a mature audience to shed light on the citizens affected by their country's government not informing them of what is happening to its citizens and the dangers of censorship. https://youtu.be/dEkliuqQo-g -A video released by the New York Times shows the inside of the labor camps in China, and it can be not very comforting for students who are not mature enough to see this footage. I will use this video to show that slavery is still happening and educate students on how important access to information is. We will also talk about the importance of human rights and how the extent of those rights varies among differing governments.
- I will refer to a book entitled "World Regional Geography" written by Caitlin Findlayson, a Geographer at the University of Mary Washington. - I will also refer to the academic textbook "World Geography" retrieved from lumenlearning.com - World Atlas.com - Google Earth.com - I will be referring to National Geographic Article "In Polynesia, Tattoos are More Than Skin Deep." https://youtu.be/PdxPCeWw75k -This video is entitled "Hyeonseo Lee: My escape from North Korea | TED."

It contains pictures of starving people and is intended to be shown to a mature audience to shed light on the citizens affected by their country's government not informing them of what is happening to its citizens and the dangers of censorship. Many people consider the media educational, but this shows a real person with a real story. This video opens up an opportunity for students who live in countries with different governments to see how the citizens are individually affected by what is happening in countries that are not governed like their home countries. This exposure to real-world events educates students about human connection, cultural respect, and learning all of the facts before trusting any media source and forming a judgment. https://youtu.be/kuU04wjiwSo -This video is entitled "Connecting the Federate States of Micronesia."
