Class experience

US Grade 5 - 9
Students will have the ability to learn and practice all topics of Social Studies through tutoring. They will practice geography skills, history, and government. 
Because there are sensitive topics when teaching social studies, relevant training is a must. My experience with teaching social studies is fairly deep. I have taught Social Studies to 6th and 8th graders for several years and then most recently moved up to teaching High School aged students for the past school year. Currently, I teach High School World History, U.S. Government, and U.S. History. In, college I was trained as a Middle School Social Studies teacher and have a degree in Social Studies Education. All my experience comes from being in a traditional school setting. 
Homework Offered
There will not be any formal homework.
Assessments Offered
Learners will be assessed through observations, informal quizzes and games, as well as discussions.
Grades Offered
Learners will not need any specific materials for this class. They are welcome to take their own notes if they would like. 
This tutoring class will be kept age appropriate and will refrain from using excessively graphic images to represent the topics covered. Students also have the option of being exposed to different regions and cultures throughout the world. With this being a social studies class, the content will be completely factual and provide all view points of topics covered. When discussing a controversial topic, I am very strict when it comes to discussions. I do not tolerate hate speech or inappropriate comments. Questions may be asked but I do not share personal opinions. As far as handling controversial topics, all facts and sides are presented to ensure there is no bias. 
I like to use a wide variety of sources to ensure that different view points are covered. These resources are only used to create the lectures and content taught in the class. Students will not be visiting these cites during class. Here is a list of sources used to create the lessons. I will also be using the Almanac of World History by National Geographic
