Class Experience

Topics will include, but are not limited to, Yellowstone Fires, Challenger Space Shuttle, Michael Jackson, and PC's...just to name a few!

Learners will be introduced to many historical topics that will be presented with a twist of facts and unusual tidbits that they will never read in any history book.  Class discussions, lecture, participation and note-taking will be the main formats used in presenting material.  Students will be asked to write answers to journal questions on the sheets provided as a pdf.
I have been teaching standard American History curriculum for 20+ years, and I have found that finding fun twists to traditional curriculum helps learners remember and relate to facts better.  This format helps my students build critical thinking skills, as well as gain knowledge about historical events.  By adding twists to familiar topics, we can expand our thinking to include new possibilities!
