This is a highly-interactive, discussion-based class that encourages student engagement and conversation. I will structure the class by using a Google Slides presentation to document the key events and moments of Monroe's Presidency, while also providing significant time for student questions and input during the lesson. I will also ask the students broader, open-ended questions that task them to think critically and to make connections to current events and contemporary America. In order...
Students will learn about the most important moments and events of James Monroe's presidency. With this newly-learned information, they will be able to practice their critical thinking skills by evaluating Monroe's legacy and assessing his continued impact on America today.
As a one-time class there is no homework, but students are encouraged to further explore Monroe after the class is over. The Classroom stream page remains open, and all are welcome to ask questions and/or continue our conversation.
In the days prior to the meeting, I will provide a brief handout that contains guidelines for our discussion on our Classroom page, along with a list of a handful of questions and topics I plan for us to discuss. I will also share a graphic organizer that students can choose to fill out during the lesson. In addition to students being able to practice taking notes, the organizer can be saved so students can further explore Monroe on their own.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will receive informal feedback from me during the lesson, and after the lesson concludes via the Classroom page. As time allows I will ask some trivia questions on Monroe at the end of class as well.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
