Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their historical learning while working to collaborate and work with other students in engaging discussion. 
For the past decade, I have been encouraging students through education and personal development to explore the challenges of the past. Through my own personal education and professional development, I create a safe environment for students to learn about challenging topics of the past. My undergraduate is in history, focusing on United States and European integration, past cultures, and empire. My first master's degree is in education with a focus on English/Language Arts and History. My second master's degree is in history with a focus on world empires and United States/Europe during the premodern era and modern era. I am currently pursuing my PhD in history focusing on immigration and relations with indigenous peoples and cultures. 
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class is geared for a mature audience as we will cover some intense topics (delivered appropriately for the age range given). 

*Note- this class covers intense topics of scary deaths, kidnappings, disappearances, wars, extermination, and more. This is not for the faint of heart, so please consider the content with your student's ability to handle such topics.*
A vast collaboration of sources will be utilized to create this content to provide the students with a multi-faceted explanation of events from differing perspectives. Some sources utilized to create the content of the course:
