I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions. I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism.
Homework OfferedThere will be 7 homework assignments given in this class. In lesson 7, the homework assignment will be to watch the movie “Lincoln” at home on the students own time. This movie is rated PG-13, so it may be deemed unsuitable for some of the younger students. Each student will write a 1 page (2-3 paragraph) paper of what they took away from the movie and how things have changed in our society since then.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Each week, a list of homework questions will be posted to the classroom page. There will also be a list of 2-5 research/project topics that the student will choose from for that week. Both of these are due on the Saturday of that week. Students will have to do research on their own time. I will be available for questions 24-7.
The homework assignment for week 7 is to watch the movie "Lincoln" at home on the students own time. (This is available on Netflix.) Some students may find some of the topics covered or scenes a bit disturbing. Please be aware that the last class (week 8) is a lecture about the movie, the characters, and what outcome the situations in the movie had on history. We will also be discussing slavery, war, and Lincoln's assassination. All topics will be handled in an age appropriate manner. This class will utilize Youtube videos for sharing of lecture videos, as well as supplemental lessons. All Youtube videos are embedded into the Outschool platform. This class may also utilize Kahoot. Learners will be given a direct link and game pin to play.
