Class experience

US Grade 7 - 10
Students will learn about the history of conservation, Jane's childhood and influences, the importance of Dr. Leakey's discoveries, the difference between Jane's method of observation and the scientific method, and facts about chimpanzees. 
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
Each will there will be two assignments. The first is a list of 3-7 discussion questions. These are to be answered by the students in their own words based on their thoughts and opinions. The second assignment is a list of 3-5 homework projects. Students are to choose 1 each week that they find interesting. These could be short research papers (1 page), a short video to watch and review, or a project. During weeks 5 and 6 we will be doing 2 different experiments. The first is an observation like Jane did. The second is to follow the scientific method. We will then compare the two.
