Class Experience

Students will be able to name several famous astronauts and tell what they have contributed to the human race; recognize and be able to discuss past and present, as well as possible future missions to space; discover various ways astronauts must train to go into space; identify the various parts of a spacesuit; recognize how difficult it can be for astronauts to live and work in space; as well as discuss specific areas of studies and things that can be done now to prepare to be a future candidate for space travel.
I have always had a love of space, from the moment my grandpa, an amateur astronomer, let me look through the 10-foot telescope he built all by himself, to watching shuttles & satellites lift into the sky, and watching some fall back to the earth. I have spotted some of the largest dust storms to hit Mars, and have enjoyed looking at the various craters on our Moon and seeing the rings around Saturn, all from my own backyard in Missouri & while using other telescopes my grandpa built. I have never ceased my exploration and search, looking to the skies to watch for eclipses, comets, and so much more! My love of all things Space has only increased with time, and I feel it is the next great wave of the future! As a teacher with a Master’s Degree in Teaching & over 30 years of experience working with children of various ages, and more than 5 years teaching students about Space, as well as other Science-related subject-matter, I love sharing my knowledge with the next generation. My hope is to instill the awe-inspiring beauty the Unknown Universe holds, as well as encourage students to dream and believe! I hope to see you in class as we learn all about Astronauts & Human Space Exploration during this Amazing Space Mission!
There is no homework for this course, however, teacher will add additional videos, flyers, color pages, notes, and other resources in the Outschool classroom for those students who truly want to dive into our weekly topic even more. 
Any learning materials needed will be available for download in the Outschool classroom.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no formal assessment for this 8-week course, however, the teacher will utilize a variety of methods to determine that learning has occurred, including, online polls, game-type activities, and in-class review questions, as well as other fun, interactive methods.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Each learner will need their cameras turned on for this class. Parents may need to assist their child in learning how to "mute & unmute" themselves, as teacher will mute students at times during the "teaching" portion of our class & then ask them to "unmute" to answer questions & interact with the other learners during the interactive, conversational, and review portions of our class. This allows each learner the opportunity to hear what is taught, while still allowing for questions, interaction and such.
YouTube videos will be posted in the Outschool Classroom for each week. These videos may be watched together in the screen-share during class times, however, if time does not permit us to do that, learners may watch them with their family outside of class. These videos are not mandatory, but are listed as they will increase overall learner understanding of the topics we cover during our classes.
