Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about the lives and accomplishments of three heroes in the context of the fighting on three different fronts (the eastern front, the western front, and the Finno-Russian front). Students will see the power of the individual by looking at the remarkable impact of these three soldiers. 
I am a licensed history teacher in the state of Utah. I have my degree in Social Studies Education from Utah State University where I researched and presented in conferences on the topics of teaching history through story telling and best teaching practices for civic education. I taught history in a brick and mortar high school for a semester before switching to outschool.
I learned about Witold Pilecki while living in Poland and visiting Auschwitz. I did a whole project on the life and accomplishments of Lyudmila Pavlichenko in college. I learned about Simo Hayha during a class I took in college about WWII in Europe from a professor who specialized in modern European history and conflict. 
40 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class talks about war, so students will be exposed to stories of brutality and violence. The atrocities committed within Auschwitz will be mentioned as will the lack of regret felt by the snipers we are discussing.
