Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the architectural, cultural, and historical importance of pagodas and build a pair of Lego pagoda models. 
I have taught elementary math and science in a classroom setting for four years.  I am certified to teach K-12 art.  I am also certified to teach all subjects (k-6).  Art and design are personal hobbies of mine.  I have a master's degree in anthropology and a minor in East Asian studies.
I will end class by encouraging learners to use the concepts they learn about in their own builds.  I will also recommend a pair of books.
 1 file available upon enrollment
Basic Lego kits will suffice. While I suggest specific pieces, we can always improvise with the pieces that your child has. Supply list: https://drive.google.com/file/d/1WmjLfBlhH28hUbkaBT9U1RKM5IN58Rx2/view?usp=sharing
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will demonstrate their basic understanding by sharing the Lego structures they build.  There will be no formal assessment.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The class will include a brief, and very general, discussion of the Buddhist origins of pagodas.
