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 struggling and/or 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.  
Homework Offered
Given the flexibility of Outschool, all suggested things will be considered optional, although they are included as suggested to help all learners to dig-deeper into the content and to review, as necessary. The suggested things are described in the overview for each topic, posted at the beginning of the week. Answer keys are built in to the overview, to avoid the need for anything to be submitted- although if any learner wants to submit something to me for feedback, they certainly can! No more than 1 hour a week should be spent on the optional activities.
1 - 2 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Informal formative assessment will be provided regularly, and parents will have the opportunity to request a "grade" for their learner, which will rely on an assessment over the big aspects of each topic. I am focused on the positive aspects of learning, and will encourage all learners to grow and improve from their mistakes. I will provide feedback for all assessments submitted and opportunities to re-assess (to improve a grade).
Grades Offered
There will be no "required" items to be completed, but I will be supplying an optional notes guide for learners and and overview of each topic with several optional activities to dig-deeper into the content and/or review (if necessary).  
I will refer to the U.S. Constitution, and the Bill of Rights (as well as the other amendments) several times in this class, given that it's the frame-work of our system of government.
