Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of U.S. history and work to strengthen their critical thinking skills through historical analysis. They will discover the major events of U.S. history and how they worked to create the United States today. We will use historical sources to dive into the past and do so in fun, engaging ways!
I have spent my life educating myself to ensure that my students receive the highest quality experience. I have a master’s degree in history and a master’s degree in education. I have been challenging and elevating students for over 10 years to delve deeply into the issues of our past and wrestle with the realities of our present and future. Each conversation will be open and honest but guided with the necessary care for students of this age. I believe it is our job as educators to not teach children what to think- but how to think and allow them to unearth the truths that are often hidden within the words of pages.
Students will receive weekly assignments created by the teacher which will include a reading and activities. 
Handouts will be provided for each week- multiple pages. 
This is an informal grading class. Formal assessment can be given upon parent request. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please note that there are some sensitive topics that will be addressed throughout the course including but not limited to: genocide, slavery, and sectional violence. 
Students will be using sources given by the teacher and historical pieces like court documents, government documents, and other historical documents that will also be provided by the teacher each week.
