Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about what made the early 2000's so iconic. They will have a better understanding of the presidential terms of both Bush and the early Obama term, how social media changed communication, changes in technology, the attacks on September 11 and how the country responded, Hurricane Katrina and it's aftermath, and how young adult literature and movies became cultural icons. 
I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. 
Each week, students will be given 3-5 options for homework. These could be writing a short paragraph/research topic, watching a youtube video or movie, listening to music, or conducting an interview. 
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
We will be discussing many aspects of culture in the early 2000's, so topics of sexism, racism, war, and discrimination will come up. We will be discussing the attacks on 9/11 and the war in Afghanistan and Iraq. All topics will be discussed in an age appropriate manner.
