Class experience

US Grade 4 - 6
This class is taught in English.
This camp provides an overview of significant historical events in U.S. History and also seeks to engage and even entertain Outschool students. 
I am a former college instructor and have been teaching on outschool for over a year. I avoid sensationalism in the presentation of difficult or upsetting topics. I have taught student from 8 years old to college students, and I am a leader in local scout troop and have coached sports as well, so I have a range of experience with different learners. 
Homework Offered
Optional suggested readings are included above. All of my courses all use a youth history book as an outline and aim at a "Great Books" approach to learning history.

The ability to connect to kahoot quizzes. They work better on a second device but can be run from one laptop or desktop computer. Optional Reading List: Allen, Thomas B., and Cheryl Harness. George Washington: Spymaster. Washington, D.C.: National Geographic Society, 2007. Swanson, James L. Chasing Lincoln's Killer. New York: Scholastic Press, 2009. Sheinkin, Steve. Lincoln's Grave Robbers. 2018.
The Lincoln assassination involves his death, and the last meeting involves a plot to steal his remains, but it not presented in an overly graphic way. Parents of sensitive learners should understand this ahead of time. 
I will provide links for videos in the chat window and also a "To Learn More" slide after every class meeting to encourage the students to further learning.
