Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Learn about the structure of the United States government, learn about the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, and learn about the similarities and differences between the American system of government and the United Kingdom.
I have a bachelor's degree and a master's degree in economics/government/politics. I also have a law degree and I am a licensed attorney. I have additionally been working as a licensed attorney for 14 years.
Nothing
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will not discuss current politics or political opinions in this class, only the history and institutions of the US government. My own opinions will not be discussed at all in this class. Any questions from learners that raise political issues or discussions will be gently redirected as the discussion will only focus on history and facts regarding the US government, the US Constitution and Bill of Rights, and how the US system of government compares to the UK. Any questions from learners regarding the subject matter can be asked orally, or can be asked in the chat, but I will answer questions orally for the benefit of the entire class.
We will refer to the US and UK Constitutions, and to US federal law, in an age-appropriate manner.
