Class Experience

I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, there will be discussions about the 4 U.S. Presidents who have been assassinated and other attempts at presidents lives. These discussions will be in an historical context and will be at an age appropriate manner. 

Live – There may be some Youtube videos that are seen during this class. I will share my screen and learners will not need to access them on their own.
