I hold a BA in History and am pursing an MA in International Relations. I have taught several courses on WWI, the Russian Revolution, WWII, and the holocaust to learners between 12-18 years old. I have also completed training seminars through educational nonprofits on how to teach political and military history to middle and high school students. I am very comfortable teaching this subject matter, and providing a safe atmosphere for learners to engage with these topics.
Learners are required to view the film PRIOR to attending class. Learners are responsible for accessing and viewing the film on their own. Access will NOT be provided by the instructor.

Christopher Noland's film "Dunkirk" is rated PG-13. It is a war film depicting violence, stressful situations, and profanity. Also, this class is designed for AP history students, ideally in high school. For these reasons, learners who are under 13 years will not be permitted to enroll in this course. Learners under 13 who attempt to enroll, will be unenrolled. This class examines war, and may include discussion of violence, battle strategies, and war technologies/weapons. Powerpoints are included in the lecture and may contain images of weapons such as firearms and artillery. No graphic, grotesque, and/or insensitive photographs or news clips will be shown, but it is important that parents and learners be aware of the subject matter. I have taught several courses on WWI, the Russian Revolution, WWII, and the holocaust to learners between 12-18 years old. I am very comfortable teaching this subject matter, and providing a safe atmosphere for learners to engage with these topics.
In addition, to Christopher Noland's film, this course is based on the writings of historians Sean McMeekin, William Shirer, John Grehan, and Julian Thompson.
