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.
Learners are expected to obtain their own copies of the books (either through purchasing them or the library).
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, we will be discussing all aspects of history. This will include topics of death, racism, slavery, discrimination, sexism, violence, and war. There may be some derogatory language in some books. All discussions will be at an age appropriate level. Some of the books listed are recommended at age 10 or 11+. Parents are advised to check reviews of each book. Commonsensemedia.com has great reviews and age suggestions. All topics will be discussed from in a historical context. 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.
Some of the sources used for this class are, but not limited to: Smithsonian Britannica National Geographic PBS Library of Congress
