US Grade 6 - 9
Students will gain an understanding of the beginning, middle, and end of the Civil War. They will also learn about Lincolns childhood, political career, time in the White House, and his family. 
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 Offered
There 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.

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.

We will also be discussing slavery, war, and Lincoln's assassination. All topics will be handled in an age appropriate manner.
