********NOTE****** This class meets 10 times. There are 2 section types: The class could be 5 weeks-2x/week OR 10 weeks-1x/week. This class is offered for 3 different age groups: 6-8, 9-11, 12+ Please be sure to choose a section that best meets your family's needs. This class relies heavily on learner participation and discussion, if your learner is camera shy or prefers to travel the world, learning at their own pace, I also offer a FLEX or an ONGOING version of this...
I am passionate about interest-led-learning. As a world traveler and a person who loves to learn about other cultures, this class fits well into that passion. I have taught this class several times in my homeschooling community and the students are always sad when it comes to an end! This class is perfect for all types of students, especially for those who love or want to travel or for those who just want to get a feel of how another kid their age goes about their day on the other side of the world. Learning about how others live and interact on a daily basis plus their customs and beliefs help individuals learn more about themselves and the values they hold near to their heart. The class structure allows for varying learning styles, attention-spans, interests, and special needs. I believe in effort. Effort in trying, the process, curiosity, wonder, and thinking! As a continual learner (a person always thinking, wondering and asking WHY) -- I strive to inspire all of my students that same passion--to be curious-minded to the world around them. To be playful. To be passionate. To be Adventurous. To be a mistake maker. To be a learner who has no boundaries!
Students will practice naming and locating countries of the continent at home assigned each week after class. For the best outcome (and the most fun) it is expected for about 15-20 min/day to be focused on this skill. The application of this daily skill practice will be applied in class via an interactive game platform--Kahoot!
2 files available upon enrollmentA few (free) websites will be utilized both in and outside of class. They are listed above in the Materials section. Lizard Point and others to aid in studying the countries Kahoot--Please download the app on a phone or tablet. This will be used during class. Having it on the same computer as the learner has in class will not work. A geography notebook with maps will be provided to be printed for use in class/home. A globe, atlas, etc should be available if the notebook is not printed.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
If a parent would like me to assign a grade for the course, please contact me and that can be done.
