Description

Class Experience

I have been an educator on Outschool since February 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of asking questions and conducting research. 
Each week, learners will be given several options for homework. These could include extra reading assignments, short research topics to write about, short films or youtube videos to watch, or conducting experiments. 

Group projects will be dependent on the size of the class. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this class, we will be discussing some of the various reasons for immigration, including violence and oppression. We will also be discussing the working conditions of those in various industries, which will include discussions about violence, intimidation, and even death. All discussions will be at an age appropriate level.
