US Grade 7 - 10
Learners will take an in-depth look at the many different people who impacted history and both key and little known events that shaped the U.S. History. This course, Part 7 of 12, will cover the growth and impact of slavery, the causes and beginning of the Civil War, important battles and people, the impact of the 13th, 14th, and 15th amendments, and what was and was not accomplished during reconstruction. 
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history, organization, reading, and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.

I am also an Outschool ACE Educator, which means that I continually seek out ways to improve my teaching skills and knowledge, as well as the learner experience. Some of the seminars/courses that I have attended in the past are: Foundations for Teaching and Learning About Native Americans; The Presence and Absence of Asian America: What Truths Lie Beyond the Headlines; Using the “Diary of Anne Frank” to Amplify Students’ Voices; Painting a Just Picture – Art and Activism. 
Homework Offered
Each week, learners will be given various readings, worksheets and discussion questions, and key assignments that will help them in understanding the material covered. These will vary from week to week. Learners will also have their choice of weekly extension projects.

In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class will cover early American history, which includes topics of violence, domination, racism, slavery, and discrimination.  All topics will be discussed at an age appropriate level. (Please check the age group of the class before registering.)

Some of the sources used for this course use derogatory and racist language towards Native Americans, African Americans, and others. My goal for this course is to be inclusive and to highlight how history is often more commonly written from the perspective of the perceived winner and to create an inclusive class that highlights multiple perspectives of history. 

There may be some Youtube videos that are listed as homework assignments. These can be watched on the Outschool classroom page.
