Description

Class Experience

The students will learn about disguises, gadgets, and secret codes that have been used throughout history. Students will learn about the people, situations, world affairs, events, and wars surrounding such events. 
There will be no homework related to this class. 
Students should bring a 'spy disguise' to class to show off during the lesson. This can be a hat, glasses, wig, etc. Students also may want a pencil and paper to take notes and also to take note of the secret symbols (images) hidden throughout the lesson.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
The learner will receive an informal assessment based on class participation. 
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class involves espionage and spying, which often happens in relation to political events and wars. While I will not dive into the specifics or violent aspects of war, it is necessary to mention what war is related to the event. It may also be necessary to give some details about the different wars, such as the parties involved.
