Description

Class Experience

This class is inspired by my personal study of the Dutch Resistance and resistance movements throughout history. 
I have taught a variety of social studies courses in both the traditional classroom and online environment for over 13 years. I love making history come to life through first hand accounts, images and stories. While my background is in middle and high school education, I have worked with younger (and older) learners as well. As a homeschooling mom of two (ages 4 and 7) I love the Outschool concept and how it enables teachers to personalize learning for all!
I love helping students dig deep into the past, learn the facts, and then develop their own opinions about critical events in history. Having fun while we learn is so important! I focus on keeping the classroom environment accepting of all students while delving into these important topics.
While no homework is assigned, an optional assignment for further study will be available at the end of the class. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will touch on a variety of tough topics in this class. While not focused on warfare or the Holocaust itself, these subjects will be addressed. Violence often goes hand in hand with resistance and oppression, and while our discussion of this topic will be age appropriate, it may be disturbing to some students. If you have any questions about this, please feel free to reach out to me to see if this class is appropriate for your child.
