Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
  • In this class, learners will examine the story behind several different iconic photographs. We will look at the backstory, why the photo was taken, who took it, and the impact that it had on the world.
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, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.

I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class will utilize Youtube videos for sharing of lecture. I will share my screen during class time so students will not have to access anything. 

This class will cover all aspects of world history, which includes topics of violence, domination, racism, slavery, and discrimination.  Many of the photographs will contain pictures of violence, war and death. Some videos (Napalm Girl) do show some nudity. These are all well known photos that are readily available, but please make sure that your learner is mature enough to handle these visuals. All topics will be discussed at an age appropriate level. (Please check the age group of the class before registering.)
