Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their understanding of U.S. history and work to strengthen their critical thinking skills through historical analysis of particular people in comparison with modern representations. They will discover the major events of U.S. history and how they worked to create the United States today. 
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. 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 an estimated 0 - 1 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, war, and sectional violence.
