Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
In this class we will explore the life and many contributions of Jim Henson. We will learn about his childhood, artistic influence, and explore the muppets, both in tv and film. We will be covering a wide variety of topics from the creative mediums and process for creating muppets, as well as a behind the scene look at some of the movies and The Muppet Show. 
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. 
Each week, students will be given options for homework. These could include watch a Henson movie and reviewing it, watching a short youtube video, constructing a muppet, or even writing a short skit. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
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. 
Some of the sources used for this class are, but not limited to: 
National Geographic
Library of Congress
