Class Experience

Students will come away from this class with an understanding of how stories shape and are shaped by people and cultures and gain a genuine excitement for storytelling.
I have taught social studies and history as a tutor, substitute teacher, and homeschool teacher, and therefore have experience in covering sensitive topics that involve war, violence, and death in a manner appropriate for children.
 5 files available upon enrollment
Please be sure to print the Germany stamp and one passport (pick the color of your choice - you only need one!). It is not necessary to have it assembled prior to class time, as this is just for fun. You can add your new stamp to your passport, and sign up for another "Story Explorer" class to collect more!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Since we will be discussing topics like folk tales, mythology, and fairy tales, there is the occasional mention of war, violence, and death. Parents and students should be aware that German folklore includes some creepy characters (like the original Grimms' Fairy Tales), but we will focus mostly on the epic and funny stories. With a bachelor's degree in history and experience teaching both history and literature, I am equipped to discuss topics like these without going into any unnecessary details, while still bringing the essence of a story to life.
