Class Experience

Students will improve their historical reasoning skills, critical thinking abilities, discussion and peer interaction skills, while learning more about the past and present connections. 
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.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
All sources used will be provided by the teacher. The lesson will utilize multiple historical documents written by the people of that time as well as sources created by the Native American Student Services, a department funded by the Office of Indian Education from the U.S. Department of Education to create a well-rounded and multifaceted lesson from multiple perspectives of the event.
