I have a degree in History as well as received my teaching license in Massachusetts. I use my love of History and facts to help children understand that history is conceived of real people who did real things. I found Social Studies class boring as a child because the teachers concentrated mostly on dates and statistics rather than the humans behind the events. I use the Founding Fathers' own words to help illustrate what they were thinking and feeling about their responsibility to the nation they were creating.
There will be worksheets and quizzes sent along with the slideshow/video presentation every week that will be due by Friday of the same week.
All handouts will be provided.
Grading will be based on the handouts and quizzes through out the course as well as the final essay written. Again, as this is not an English/writing course and an international school, the essay will be graded on the understanding of the materials and not grammar and spelling.
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
US Constitution, Declaration of Independence, Articles of Confederation, Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact, letters from the founding fathers as well as information on the philosophers who inspired the text. I will be sending my Power Point Presentation every week.
Using my love for pop/geek culture to encourage the love of learning.
