Getting To Know American Girl Samantha & Victorian Daily Life
In this one time class, you will learn about what it was like to be a kid during the American Victorian era.
US Grade 3 - 6
In this one time class, I will introduce Samantha from the American Girl book series. We will talk about who she is and why her books are great examples of courage, kindness, and being a great friend. I will review a brief preview of all of her books/stories, talk about Samantha and her characteristics, but mostly, talking about the time in which she lived. I will talk about what it was like to be a kid living in America during Victorian times.
Students will learn different elements of American life during the Victorian era and the Industrial Revolution using the American Girl "Samantha" book series as a reference.
Hi there! My name is Mrs. Rodenbeck and I am a middle school history teacher! I have taught 6th, 7th, and 8th, grade history for the past 5 years! Before that, I taught high school history. I absolutely LOVE learning about people from the past! I like understanding how people lived in different times in history. I studied anthropology in college. My goal as a kid was to be Indiana Jones! Archaeology and cultural anthropology are my favorite disciplines. I like to learn about what past peoples have built and how those things impact their culture. I’ve even done work for Chicago’s Field Museum since 2007. Now I work in the education department at the Field Museum with other teachers and bringing history topics into their classrooms. I love teaching about the American Girl books and their periods of time in history because I used to WORK at the American Girl store in Chicago. I worked there all throughout my college years. I loved American Girl when I was a kid and I loved it, even more, when I worked at the store in college! I hope that from this course, you can take some of my passion for history and for American Girl and get a little more excited about learning about other people. There are so many fun and exciting things to learn about! I can’t wait to share them with you!
