Class Experience

Government: Students will learn about the three branches of the United States government, the Bill of Rights, historical symbols, and what it means to be a United States citizen. 
The materials will come from an anti-racist, decolonized perspective when speaking about geography and cultural issues. I will use a pre-test with each unit to identify the level needed for scaffolding the materials. The level of information ranges from first to fourth-grade equivalent and I will provide additional resources if the student is interested in going deeper. I am a former special education teacher and created and implemented social studies curriculum for middle school students with disabilities. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
I will be using carefully curated videos and resources within Nearpod. I will use Nearpod in the teacher-directed mode. Students may choose to create a free Nearpod account and have two windows open to participate in student activities or use a second device. Or, students can watch through my shared screen and participate through annotation. Nearpod is an approved third-party educational tool. It is rated as excellent through Common Sense Education.
