The 1960's were such a unique time in U.S. History. The transition from the 1950's postwar, cold-war era has become iconic in the study of societal change. From the music, protests and movements, fashion, technology, and expansion into space, the 60's changed the world and shaped the world that we live in now.

Students will learn about the political and social impact of the 1960's on today's society.
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, I will post to the classroom a list of 3-7 questions due the following Saturday. There will also be a list of 2-5 research topics or projects, and each student will choose two that interests them. Answers for the research topics only have to be a paragraph or two.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This class will cover topics such as discrimination, racism, sexism, the Vietnam War, the LGBT movement, and environmentalism. This class will utilize Youtube videos for sharing of lecture videos, as well as supplemental lessons. All Youtube videos are embedded into the Outschool platform. This class may also utilize Kahoot. Learners will be given a direct link and game pin to play.
