Come join us as we walk through 11 weeks of witch facts, legends, and folklore. Each week, by Wednesday evening (9pm PST) - -I will email each student a link that weeks lecture and assignments.

Students will learn not only about the Salem Witch Trials, but the possible theories of why it occurred, the witch hunts in Europe, different cultures beliefs on witchcraft, and other points in history where the marginalized have been persecuted.
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 there will be a list of discussion questions (5-10) for the students to answer. These are opinion questions, and are to gauge what the student learned or had questions about the lecture. Each week there will also be a list of homework options for each student to choose from. These will be mostly short research topics where each student is encouraged to write a short paper (1-2 paragraphs).
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There may some suggested reading material or films as options also. There will be discussions about the forms of torture that was inflicted up on the accused, which is why the age limit is set to 14-18. This class will utilize Youtube videos for sharing of lecture videos, as well as supplemental lessons. All Youtube videos are embedded into the Outschool platform. This class may also utilize Kahoot. Learners will be given a direct link and game pin to play.
