Class Experience

Social Studies - Melissa Quijano has a Master's of Adolescent Social Studies Education and has been teaching for over 5 years. She is extremely passionate about the social sciences and strives to make history relatable to students. She is constantly looking to expand her perspective on historical topics by going to museums all over the world. Melissa frequently teaches about imperialism and colonization and works hard to ensure multiple viewpoints are shared and that the voices of those affected are not silenced. She has studied colonization in Africa and Latin America at the graduate level. 

Science - Lora Danley has been teaching since her undergraduate years at MIT and has amassed over 20 years of teaching experience since then. She has taught learners of all ages from 5-65 both in person and online. Lora is extremely passionate about science and former students report that she makes the subject fun and interesting for them. 
Science: After the first class, I will provide a file that includes common household materials or easily purchased items to have handy for each week. Students will also receive the e-textbook as a file after the first class. For the first class students will need pen and paper and a paper clip or a safety pin as well as a simple calculator (cell phone or an online calculator will work fine). Social Studies: Notebook, pen; digital is fine
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
The Social Studies aspect of this class will discuss imperialism. The Opium Wars were fought over the right of the British to distribute drugs to the Chinese people. Social Darwinism and eugenics were popular modes of thinking that influenced British actions during this period as well.
