This 5-day course won’t be what you’d find in history books, and it isn't about exact dates or memorizing facts. This class is about understanding changes in 1900s America and how these moments changed the world forever. Students will embark on a journal-style writing history class full of unusual topics, unknown tidbits, and eye-opening realizations about incredible inventions, amazing people, and natural disasters that changed our world drastically. This course will include videos,...
Topics will include, but are not limited to, the World Wide Web, Oprah Winfrey, Forrest Gump in the movies, Storm of the Century and Grunge Style...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. Knowledge is like the wind…once you feel it...it can take you anywhere!
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!
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
