Class Experience

Students will learn students will learn all of the major functions of the Executive, Legislative, and Judicial branches of government. The course will begin with how the President of the United States elected into office, and end with the checks and balances on each branch. 
 I have a professional teaching license and have spent over 13 years teaching social studies to a hundreds of students. I currently teach Government at a local Jr/Sr high school (7-12). I have vast knowledge and experience with this content having a working knowledge of all aspects of functioning government. I also have an abundance of resources related to the curriculum having taught the subject for so long. 
Students will be expected to complete assignments and assessments. The majority of the work will require students to work independently, but occasionally they may be requested to comment on the post from another student. The amount of time spent on classwork at home each week will depend on how quickly each student is able complete parts of the course. However, it is expected that students will spend no less than 2 hours per week. 
They will need a notebook for class and a folder is recommended for any materials students want to print for the class. Students will need access google forms, docs, and slides.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
