Class Experience

I have over twenty years experience working with and teaching students.  I have a bachelor's degree in both History and Economics.  My master's degree is in Higher Education.  I also have a juris doctorate degree in Law.  Most importantly, I have a passion for teaching, history in particular! 
Each week learners will receive three to five assignments that can be found in Google Classroom.  The assignments include readings and an assignment. Assignments include fill-in-the-blank, writing open-response questions, drawing, and many others.

Students will also complete three projects during the class.  Each project will be centered around one of the topics we are learning about, and students will have a variety of choices to choose from that matches their interests.  Examples of projects include:  making a short film, developing a virtual presentation, writing an essay, creating a game, creating a family interview, creating a fashion review, creating a pamphlet, and many more.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive four grade reports throughout the class (approximately every four weeks).  The grade report will detail grades on assignments and class participation.

A final letter grade can be given if requested.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Assignments  and topics will include information about various historical events and subjects that can be sensitive in nature.  All assignments will be kept at an age-appropriate manner.
