I have a B.A. in History and an M.A. in World History, as well as an M.A. in Globalization Studies. I have always had a passion for research and World History, and feel that this course will provide a fun introduction into that world using a CSI themed approach to history! I worked as a teaching assistant for two years during my M.A. in early American history and Peace Studies, including the original 13 colonies, the role of women in the colonies, and early American slavery, including the Underground Railroad into Canada. My research thesis involved the role of freed black men and women in the 1980-1850s, and the ways in which their writings influenced political and social changes. The course will use some primary sources to engage students into the world of the Black History both in the U.S. and Canada! However, no previous reading is required for this experience! 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The game does not have any graphic or scary elements. 

COPPA Policy for Thinklink and Youtube:

There are video clips embedded in the Google Forms Quiz from Youtube. Safety and privacy are our top priorities. Learners under 13 will need to have Parental Consent when accessing those links on Youtube to comply with COPPA.

Students will be provided with a direct code to access the game link, and will bypass any registration or sign-ins for Thinklink as I have a Professional Teacher License through the service to use the platform as a teaching tool. Therefore, learners will not need to provide any information or sign up for the platform themselves. In fact, students will be provided with a link that restricts them from having to share any personal information or sign in, as the game will appear on their screen without an interface. However, parental consent will be required to comply with COPPA. As per the terms of usage, all students accessing the Service are subject to consent provided via their educator or educational institution, as allowed under COPPA, and will require the use of a unique invitation code supplied by their instructor or education institution in order to create an account or access the platform. Any use or access to the Service by anyone under 13 without Consent, is strictly prohibited and in violation of this Agreement.
