Class Experience

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. 
Suggested reading list based on the courses I offer on Outschool. Again this will be mostly student and parent-directed based upon interest:
