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 and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.
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.
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.
