Class Experience

Students will acquire and demonstrate skills in critical analysis of primary and secondary historical sources. Objectives: Interpret information, and other forms of evidence, in their historical context. Differentiate between historical fact and Mythical fiction. 
The students will be given a Traditional Soul Cake recipe and will be encouraged to complete this activity with a family member at home. 
A recipe for soul cakes will be provided.
Upon request, the parent may receive a certificate of completion. 
1 hour 15 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Children under 10 years of age may find the course's information to be a bit spooky. 
This is primarily a lecture-style course full of wonderful and fun historical information. Students who need high levels of stimulation to stay focused may find difficulty staying focused.  Parents are encouraged to reach out to me prior to class if their child needs more simulation to stay on task. I will be asking the students specific questions in order to encourage them in a discussion, I do ask that their videos stay on. If your child is shy, please let me know ahead of time and we will find the appropriate accommodations.
All source materials will be posted to the classroom prior to the start of class.

I hold a BFA in Art...
