Class Experience

Learners will summarize the Louisiana Purchase and explain the journey Lewis and Clark made with the Corps of Discovery.
Learners will identify who Lewis and clark. 
Learners will discuss and analyze primary sources written by Lewis and Clark.
Learners will discuss the findings of Lewis and Clark such as wildlife, rivers and plants.
Learners will discuss the effects the Corps of Discovery had on the indigenous people that once thrived in the Louisiana Territory.
As a classroom educator in the area of social studies for 18 years, and as a historical reenactor for more than 20 years, I look forward to presenting this class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This course offers content that is of the early 19th century and includes content of many groups of indigenous people that were denied equal rights and freedoms. The relationships of white explorers and the indigenous people will be discussed, as well as
the inaccurate and misrepresentations of the indigenous tribes written in the journals of Lewis and Clark.  Any and all discussion on this topic will be welcomed and encouraged in a respectful and educated manner.
It is necessary to provide both view points of the peoples that were impacted, such as the indigenous peoples that lived in the interior of the North American Continent, and the negative consequences, ultimately resulting in the destruction of many cultures.
