I am a certified English teacher. In brick and mortar schools, we discuss laws, ethics, and morals presented in short stories, novels, and newspaper articles. As also stated in my teacher profile, prior to becoming a teacher, I was a correctional officer. I have successfully completed two training academies and worked in maximum and medium-security prisons. Each training academy required successful completion of academic pertaining to laws, morals, and ethics, as well as state exams (Florida and Texas), as well as successful completion of the physical components and requirements.
I have taught elective courses in social skills, anger management, and critical thinking in brick and mortar classrooms as well as online through virtual learning. I am also a certified life coach and engage individuals and small groups in conversations pertaining to social skills, critical thinking, and anger management to promote inter and intrapersonal skills. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Students and parents should feel comfortable with learners engaging in open discussions about laws, ethics, and morals. Please read the topics listed in the description prior to enrolling as students will be actively engaged in discussions based on their opinions, thoughts, and experiences.
