Class experience

US Grade 5 - 8
Learners can analyze different historical periods, ideas, and themes and make connections among them.

I have over twenty years of experience working with and teaching students.  I have a bachelor's degree in both History and Economics.  My master's degree is in Higher Education.  I also have a Juris Doctorate in Law.  Most importantly, I have a passion for teaching, history in particular! 

Homework Offered
Each week, the students will receive three to five lessons in Google Classroom to increase the learner's understanding. Assignments include answering questions, fill-in-the-blank, open-response, and creative lessons. A quiz or game will sometimes be included in the assignments. Students will also complete three projects throughout the semester. Each project will be centered around one of the topics we are learning about and students will have a variety of choices to choose from that matches their interests. Examples of projects include: making a short film, developing a virtual presentation, writing an essay, creating a game, conducting a family interview, creating a fashion review, creating a pamphlet, and many more.
