I am a U.S. History and Ethnic Studies teacher. I received my master's in education at Stanford where I studied Civic Online Reasoning with other students and professors.

Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.

There will also be a source that speaks about Hilary Clinton. The class is NOT a political class and the conversation will be about “how can we check if this source is reliable”.
