I am a state-licensed teacher and highly-qualified in teaching social studies. Teaching history from the viewpoint of people, rather than nations is important to me. 
Each week, 
 I will email each student a link of the lecture/ss for the week. 
I will post to the classroom page a document with guided notes and several comprehension questions that are to be completed after watching the weekly lesson.
Learners will be asked to respond with short written summaries and/or  quick write responses on Padlet. 
I check my Outschool pages every day Monday-Friday during the week to check for learner responses and questions.
All learner responses can also be sent through to the classroom page. All communication can be done through the Outschool classroom.  I encourage learners to use Padlet and Booklet as they are more interactive.

In the French Indian War/Seven Year War, there were political winners and losers, but these will be explained only from the political viewpoint of the French and the British. Students will also discuss how the Native nations lost both culturally and politically, regardless of which side they were fighting on.
