Description

Class Experience

Learners will explore however many sovereign states they sign up for throughout the year, anywhere from 4 to 208. They will cover geography and history in a fun and memorable way.
I currently teach a class regarding the UN and sovereign states (The Rule of Law) and a class regarding laws around the world where we follow our journey on a map (Bespoke and Unique Laws from Around the Globe)

I am a lawyer in Australia, and I have homeschooled my own children for the past 8 years and will continue to do so for at least another 17 years (my youngest child is 1y as of 2022). 

I have degrees, post-graduate, and professional qualifications in the following:

- Law - Bachelor of Laws, Graduate Diploma of Legal Practice, Admission as a Lawyer;

- TESOL - I have completed 8 out of 8 units towards the 150-hour qualification. When I receive my official professional certificate from Arizona State University I will update this here;

- Bachelor of Arts in Security, Terrorism and Counterterrorism from Murdoch University which covered the following topics:
Ethnic Conflict and Multiculturalism
Ethnic Questions in East and South-East Asia
Chinese Political Economy and Business
Islam: Past and Present
Power and Legitimacy in Modern Political Thought
Practical Ethics
Politics in Contemporary China
Terrorism in a Globalised World

- I.T. Security;
- Applied Linguistics;
- Investigative Services;

I have also completed the following short courses which are relevant to the classes I teach here:

- How Forensic Science should speak to the Court;
- Introduction to Key Constitutional Concepts and Supreme Court Cases (USA);
- An Introduction to American Law (USA);
- English Common Law: Structure and Principles (UK);
- Economic Growth and Distributive Justice;
- Water Supply and Sanitation Policy in Developing Countries;
- Reason and Persuasion: Thinking Through Three Dialogues By Plato;
- Technology and Ethics;
- ADHD: Everyday Strategies for Elementary Students;
- The Clinical Psychology of Children and Young People;
- Everyday Parenting: The ABCs of Child Rearing;
- A Brief History of Humankind.

I will be running this class with my own children for their homeschool, and they would love it to be an Outschool class so that they can learn with their friends whilst I am teaching them!
- There will be a blank map of the world, a blank map of each country, and a blank flag of each country to fill in daily (for 4 days per week) and learners can upload them either daily or weekly for feedback. 
- These tasks are optional and are just for further enrichment to help solidify the new knowledge that the learners will have from this course.
- A blank "flag" handout will be supplied (PDF) with each class for the learners to colour-in and draw the details of the flags of the countries of that class. - Blank maps will also be supplied (PDF) to be filled in and coloured in as applicable. - Learners will need pencils or crayons or alike for colouring in their flags and maps. - A multiple choice quiz will be handed out on Thursday of the final / fourth week in PDF format to be completed and uploaded as per the instructions in the "assessment" section.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
- There will be an optional multiple choice quiz on Friday of the fourth / final week with 2 questions regarding each of the 16 countries they have studied = 32 questions. 
- If students would like feedback, they can upload their quiz either to the classroom or privately in a message to the teacher for marking and feedback during the final weekend of this course.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
- When applicable, I will screen share slides from Google Slides, and I will share media from YouTube in our classroom.
- Learners are not required to access anything on the internet outside of Outschool for this class.
As well as the following websites, I will be sharing my own photos and souvenirs from my travels around the world as applicable:

- https://www.britannica.com
- https://www.worldatlas.com
