Class Experience

1.  Understand the limitations of the Articles of Confederation.
2.  Understand how the US Constitution came to be.
3.  Identify the individual contributions of Washington, Hamilton, Jay, and Madison that made the transition from the Articles of Confederation to the Constitution possible.
I teach over a dozen social studies courses on Outschool including one on the Revolutionary War.  I'm a former University instructor.
I usually ask learners to do a 60-90 second oral report in the last session on an assigned topic relevant to the class (often on an event or a person relevant to the class).
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Knowledge checks and discussion.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
There is no content that is sensitive or requires parental guidance.
We will refer to the Articles of Confederation, the US Constitution, and the US Bill of Rights.
