Class experience

US Grade 8 - 11
When students complete this class, they should be able to look at any historic document and "source" it. They will be able to determine who the author is, what the author's authority is, when the source was written and if that date impacts the source's reliability. 
They will also know how to take two accounts of the same story and pull corroborating facts out.
They will know how to determine which sources are reliable and which are not.
They will know what primary and secondary sources are.
They will know how to determine which sources should be used for a research paper and which should not.
They will learn key events and concepts in American history including the Industrial Revolution, Great Depression, World War I, World War II, and more.
My Masters degree is in American Studies and I spent a great deal of my graduate studies focusing on the Civil War, Westward Expansion, and the Industrial Revolution. I have been teaching this course in person to homeschoolers for a year and have been teaching History on Outschool for almost as long. I am constantly reading new works from prominent historians and I attend professional development courses each summer through The Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History, which helps me keep up to date on historical scholarship. 
Homework Offered
Students will be given homework some weeks, but not all weeks. All homework will be given in pdf form so that students can print the worksheets or they can upload the pdf to kamiapp.com and type directly onto the pdf. Students are strongly encouraged to read A Young People's History of the United States throughout the class. If they are participating in the reading, all reading will be done as homework.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Student progress will be assessed through their in-class work and homework.
Grades Offered
Students will be given pdfs each week that contain the in-class work and homework. These pdfs need to be printed or if the student prefers to type answers, pdfs can be uploaded to the Kami App website and students can type directly onto the pdfs.

Students are strongly encouraged to use A Young People's History of the United States by Howard Zinn, though another US History book that covers all of these topics can be substituted.
As with any US History course, we will be covering topics like death, war, racism, slavery, and sexism. I will not shy away from these topics, but will help the students understand that though racism, slavery, sexism, etc. are part of the fabric of American History, they are not acceptable by our standards today. 
I use almost entirely primary sources as the curriculum for my History courses. Students will be reading primary sources during class and working to analyze those primary sources.
