I have a B.A. in European History and an M.A. in World History, as well as an M.A. in Globalization Studies. I focused my B.A. in European History with a focus on the Middle Ages and Renaissance art and culture to the 19th century, including European Viking trade and warfare. I did women studies in the Early modern and Renaissance period. In graduate school, I studied the cultural history of the Europen Enlightenment, as well as historiography from ancient Greece& Rome into the Renaissance and the Enlightenment Era, specifically in the areas of art, politics, culture, and philosophy. I have always had a passion for European and World History, and feel that this course will provide a fun introduction into that world!

While we will explore viking raids, there will be no depictions of gore or actual violence. The documentaries and videos are all kid-friendly. They do not depict any graphic content. The game does not have any graphic or scary elements. COPPA Policy for Thinklink and Youtube: There are video clips embedded in the Google Forms Quiz from Youtube. Safety and privacy are our top priorities. Learners under 13 will need to have Parental Consent when accessing those links on Youtube to comply with COPPA. Students will be provided with a direct code to access the game link, and will bypass any registration or sign-ins for Thinklink as I have a Professional Teacher License through the service to use the platform as a teaching tool. Therefore, learners will not need to provide any information or sign up for the platform themselves. In fact, students will be provided with a link that restricts them from having to share any personal information or sign in, as the game will appear on their screen without an interface. However, parental consent will be required to comply with COPPA. As per the terms of usage, all students accessing the Service are subject to consent provided via their educator or educational institution, as allowed under COPPA, and will require the use of a unique invitation code supplied by their instructor or education institution in order to create an account or access the platform. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 without Consent, is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement.
