Class Experience

Learners will learn about different time periods, different backgrounds, and how to present ideas and projects to peers.
I have been a teacher on Outschool since 2020 and I teach on 2 additional online platforms. I have a biology background, however, I studied US and World History for 3 years in college, as well as 2 years of Chinese. I have also trained in a non-credited format, for many years, with an author and speaker who specializes in teaching children character qualities. 

I have always enjoyed teaching. My first teaching position was in Moscow, Russia, teaching English as a second language. Since then, I’ve taught in various settings which include a cooperative, a preschool, and as a tutor in the areas of math, science, and English. I also am a homeschool mom!

I have taught this class to different groups at a cooperative, for both lower and upper elementary students. I enjoy teaching a subject or principle and including different areas of study along with the original idea. 
Reading of the weekly book and book based project. I will also send links and printables to aid in the experience. 
Students will need a copy of the book. It can be downloaded on a Kindle device instantly, purchased directly, or borrowed from the library. We will be making discovery journals during the first class, I will send the printable to the classroom, please have it printed. It is not hard to make but will require a stapler and glue. If you’re more comfortable doing it before the first class, that is fine... just let me know! Students will also need supplies for their projects. Depending on what they want to do, most supplies will be on hand, such as paper, cardboard, glue, crayons, scissors... and if they'd like to... they may practice writing in the style of the author of the week.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
History is full of things that can be unpleasant. During our reading we will learn things about these individuals that we might not have known, for instance... depression, racial injustice, woman's rights issues, but we will also see how people can overcame much of this, and even how those hardships brought about change. Please note that multiple perspectives will be given in class and that the class does cover material about Native Peoples and those that are today called conquerors or conquistadors. 

*The Who Was series is great for young readers, bringing age appropriate information to readers, however, they are not meant to be the only perspective on a person or situation. I will be including other perspectives during class. Please see the Parental Guidance section for additional information.
Christopher Columbus: A Captivating Guide to the Life of an Italian Explorer and His Voyages to the Americas and Straits: Beyond the Myth of Magellan... are just a couple books read to prepare for this class.
