*Please note, I am not currently offering this class in this format. I re-created this class as an ongoing class that meets every week. Check out that listing at https://outschool.com/classes/around-the-world-with-mr-clark-A5YGdgnx#usQ4WOXRMZ -- Each week we travel to a new destination. We learn about a new place as if we were planning a trip to that location. We start with some basic questions. Is it in the Northern or Southern Hemisphere? The East or West? What's the line that divides...
Students will develop a good understanding of global geography, historic trade routes, political ties and colonization. Why is Spanish predominantly spoken in Central America? Because it was colonized by Spain. Why is Portuguese spoken in Brazil? Same answer. French in Morocco? That's an interesting one... This is a true social studies course in how it is interdisciplinary. We cover geography, history, culture, religion, political structures, natural wonders and wildlife, foods. What would you want to do if you went to Rio de Janeiro or Tokyo or the Gobi Desert? These will be the things we talk about as we go to those places. Over time, the kids will be exposed to lots of different cultures, religions, political structures. They'll have a sense for where these places are in the world. They'll learn tips and clues for finding different places on a map.
I love travel and if I have not been there yet, it's on my list! I've traveled to and have lived abroad in seventeen different countries. Much of what we do each week is the same type of research I would do on a destination before I would travel to that country.
Students are invited to do their own research about our upcoming destinations to present to the class. Students may be invited to share more advanced research, but this is not required.
Parents are also provided with a Field Guide and Weekly Notes for discussion topics with their kids. Parents looking for work samples to submit to fulfill charter school requirements will be pleased with the downloadable resources provided.
Optional weekly quizzes and optional quiz at the end of the course. Optional worksheets and materials for students to continue their learning and go deeper in the topics discussed in class. Parents are also provided with a Field Guide and Weekly Notes for discussion topics with their kids. Parents looking for work samples to submit to fulfill charter school requirements will be pleased with the downloadable resources provided.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Parents, please note. This class is deigned for kids ages 10-14. I also offer this same class tailored to younger students ages 7-9.
