Description

Class Experience

In this introductory class students will learn the basics of citizenship.  What are a citizen's rights and responsibilities? How do non-citizens become U.S. citizens? How can you lose your citizenship?  
I have extensive experience teaching middle school civics and U.S. history.  I have a Bachelor's Degree in Political Science and a Master's Degree in Curriculum and Instruction.  I have been teaching for 25+ years.
In this introductory class I will expect the students to start a vocabulary notebook.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There will not be an assessment since this is an introductory class.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be using ICIVICS.COM as a resource to teach this class.  This is a wonderful site created by former Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O'Connor to teach kids about civics.  This site is free for the students to make an account and it provides a lot of valuable civics resources as well as a very engaging game platform for kids to practice their civics skills.
I will be utilizing Kahoot as a fun game format for review of material covered in class.  This is a free game platform for kids and they really enjoy competing with each other over the content.  Nearpod is an interactive power point program that I utilize that is free for students.  I can lead live nearpods over content and assign nearpods that the kids can work through at their own pace.  They are a fantastic interactive resource that I have used for years. Ed puzzle is a short video clip platform that has the user watch short clips over selected information and answer questions as they go along.  It is a free resource for kids and the kids really enjoy the clips. All of the above stated resources are FREE and I have utilized them in my civics instruction for years.  
I will be using my knowledge of this topic along with a variety of sources:  The U.S. Constitution, The Articles of Confederation, The Bill of Rights, The Declaration of Independence, and the site ICIVICS.COM which is full of teacher resources that I have used for many years.
