This is a social studies tutoring class based up parent requests for extra help or student directed research into youth history topics. As such, it will involve the tools of history: reading books, researching topics of interest to the student, critical thinking and analysis, and writing skills for middle and high school students. As a college instructor for U.S. History, many of my students came not knowing how to do research, not knowing how to organize an essay, or knowing how to analyze...
This class is taught in English.
This course is aimed at personal enrichment for those who excel in social studies and want to go farther, or those who need extra help learning the skills involved in history.
I have master's degree in history from Pepperdine University and have taught college history for four years.
This will also be student and parent-directed, but reading through a youth history book and discussing it weekly was the first parent request/suggestion.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Sensitivity to the age of the student will be exercised in selecting books and websites. Parents will be notified if the material is difficult or upsetting.
