Class Experience

Learners will gain a better understanding of the different groups of settlers that came to North America, how important religion and politics were to their growth, their relationship with Native Americans and other colonial communities, and how slavery became an integral part of their society. We will also examine growing international relationships between different European countries and look at the impact of the Seven Years War on both politics and westward expansion.
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 and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary.
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:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
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. 

Live – There may be some Youtube videos that are seen during this class. I will share my screen and learners will not need to access them on their own.
