I am a certified social studies teacher with over a decade of experience working with learners.  I am certified in Missouri and Indiana to teach social studies to grades 5-12.  *Social studies refers to American History, Geography, Government/Civics, Sociology, Psychology, and World History.  
I focus on individualizing lessons to meet the needs of learners, including those who are struggling and students who need more challenge.  I have a BA in Political Science, a MA in Secondary Education, and an Ed Spec degree in Educational Technology.  I use technologies in effective and creative ways to enhance the learning process and increase motivation of learners.  
If a parent has any questions about my education and/or qualifications, I encourage them to message me.  
Learners will be asked to complete some required activities outside of the class, and I will provide suggestions for optional extensions of knowledge.  These activities will be a range of reading tasks, DBQ's, forms, analysis questions, research opportunities, and watching short videos.  A variety of resources will be shared, in an attempt to include learners who are interested in different things and who need/want the additional practice and/or challenge.  No learner should feel overwhelmed!  
I will supply all materials.
Formative assessment/feedback will be included weekly.  If a more structured grading metric is required (by the parent), I can include this as well.  It's very important that parents communicate with me early on if they would like "grades" and how regularly.  
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This American Government course is exciting, interesting, and will undoubtedly include sensitive subjects- as is true of all history.  I will work hard to ensure discussion remains age-appropriate and pro-actively contact parents if any questionable situations occur.
