Class Experience

Learners will have a better understanding of important events throughout the world. 
I am a certified teacher in the state of Texas. I have taught 5-12th grade. Throughout my 18 years of teaching Social Studies and Language Arts, I have developed an understanding of how to teach sensitive topics through understanding, compassion, dignity, and respect. 
Learners are expected to read each book before class.
Learners may read each book in any format- audio, hard copy, digital.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The age range set for this class matches the age range of all the books. Every book read in this class will have some death(s) in it since the events take place during famines, war, conflicts, and attacks by foreign entities. The deaths are not described in gruesome details. Endangered- Realistic characters (ape and human) deal with disturbing situations described in graphic, but never gratuitous detail. (age range 12-16)
The Boy Who Dared- Helmuth Hübener is hung at the end of the book for working against the Nazis.
Between Shades of Gray- Starvation, death, and separation of family due to Stalin's policy dealing with political prisoners. 
Nory Ryan's Song- Starvation, death, and separation of family due to potato famine.

No outside material will be presented in this class.
