Class Experience

Students will try to solve some of histories biggest mysteries all while learning about different time periods, customs, and places.
Students will learn about interesting times, places, and events and use their deductive reasoning to come share conclusions. I generally use a Socratic method of questioning and often do not provide "answers." 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Some topics may be sensitive, for instance since these stories are about historical mysteries most of the people featured have died, sometimes violently, mysteriously, or with lots of gore. Some stories are simple mysteries, while others are outright spooky or scary. 

This class is a good fit for thrill seekers or kids who want history classes that tell a story and have an adventure feel to them. 

I will send out a teaser the week before class with a hint about the following week's story. There will also be a scare factor disclaimer. If I think a class is scarier than normal I will let you know so you can decide whether to attend. If you let me know in advance (by at least a day) that your child will not be attending due to the scare factor I will refund your cost that week. 

I will post a Green for Not scary for most learners with the topic, Yellow for moderate scare, and Red for Super Scary or more sensitive topic. Of course, some individuals find things more or less scary than others do so this is just a guideline. You know your child best. 

I will refund for classes that a child attends but leaves early due to not being ok with the content. 

I will discuss murder as needed or deaths if they are pertinent to the lesson or an integral part of the topic. For instance, you can't discuss the deaths of the Romanov family without discussing their execution. It is hard to teach a class about war without talk of fighting, violence, and death.  

I also know that this is not a class for every student, I have a lot of fun and whimsical classes, and I suspect there are many of those classes to find. This class is specifically designed with thrill seeking history fans in mind. This class is for them! 

I used to have this class starting at 7 years old but it became apparent pretty quickly that not all 7 year olds were a good match for the class so I changed it. Some kids will not be scared at all by a red level class and others may be horrified by what I thought was a green level class. This is very subjective.  Every week I will post the following week's topic so you can make educated decisions about whether you think the content might be too scary for your child. I trust parents to know their children the best and judge for themselves. So if you believe this is a good fit for your child but they are outside the age range you may enroll them.. If it ends up not being a good fit you can unenroll at any time. You also can opt to "skip" a week that will not be a good fit and I can just refund you. 
This class uses a lot of video clips to help with story telling. It takes me between 10-16 hours to research each class, watch all the videos and then find what I'm going to utilize for class. This is a lot more work than when I simply share a story from history which generally takes an hour or two to craft. If you do not want your child watching videos this is NOT a good class for you.
