Description

Class Experience

I hold a Master of Science in Legal Studies.
For classwork each work, students will be asked to answer challenge questions, write and submit a one-paragraph report, and respond to in-class discussion questions after viewing lesson videos. Including video watching time, students will spend approximately an hour on classwork per week.  
No outside materials necessary.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Quizzes related to each lesson will assess student learning progress.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Some topics will be covered which could be viewed as politically-sensitive, such as discussion of civil rights and human rights.
The U.S. Constitution (https://constitution.congress.gov/constitution/)
The Bill of Rights (https://www.britannica.com/topic/Bill-of-Rights-United-States-Constitution)

We will talk about these documents, but it isn't necessary for students to have a copy in class.
