Class Experience

When I was a kid, I hated history! I thought that it was the most boring part of my school day. It wasn't until my interest in science led me to study anthropology as an undergraduate that I realized I was also studying history - and that it was awesome! My education in social work stimulated interest in how modern history impacts social justice. As a teacher of history, it is important to me to educate students about the ways in which our past informs the present and future.
I will provide curriculum for the class. The Melody film is available for streaming through Amazon.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
