Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
- Students will be able to identify the importance of historical context in reviewing past events
- Students will be able to summarize the concluding challenges the crew of the Endurance faced
- Students will be able to relate the modern-day discovery of the Endurance 
I have taught social studies, and am licensed to do so in the state of Ohio. Having taught ancient history, I know the importance of presenting multiple viewpoints, and sticking to relating true documentable events, rather inserting my modern view/opinion into a complex historical story. 
Homework not required. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The learners will be answering questions to unlock the escape rooms that review key parts of the expedition. We will discuss and elaborate on these events as a full class. 
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We are discussing a true story of an Antarctic expedition - while not described in great detail, we will discuss the fact that some of the crew contracted gangrene, and had to eat penguins for food in order to survive.  

Note Concerning the PBS Resource: 
- This is a compilation of journal entries, accounts, background knowledge of the expedition, and photos from members of the Endurance Crew that will be referenced in the escape room material. 

Note Concerning the BBC Resource: 
- This is a new article that details the discovery of the sunken Endurance ship. It includes a short video relating the discovery.
