Class Experience

Students will learn about the events that led the colonists to rise up against the Crown, the sometimes surprising closely held beliefs of the primary author, the purpose of the document, changes to Jefferson's first draft, his style and approach, and the purpose of each of the four sections of the document.
Please see my profile.
Worksheets are sometimes assigned for homework. I will recommend videos or writings for students, but these are not required.
A copy of the final version Declaration of Independence with numbered paragraphs and notations will be provided. All materials will be provided via email attachment.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will not a be a formal grading process unless requested by the parent; however, short quizzes may be given at the end of some classes so that I might measure class understanding of the material covered. Those who are using the course for homeschooling should feel free to contact me about your needs.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Students will need a copy of Thomas Jefferson's final Declaration of Independence. I will send each student a copy of the final Declaration of Independence that will include numbered paragraphs and additional notations..

Students will also need a notebook and a writing instrument for notes.
