I am a certified social studies teacher with over 15 years of experience teaching learners ages 6-18+.
I focus on inclusive, differentiated, & individualizing lessons to meet the needs of learners.  I hope to support all learners, including those who are 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 online 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, or about any aspect of a class- please message me!
Homework Offered
Multiple optional activities will be provided for learners to explore and review the topics outside of the "live" classes. It is recommended that learners consult with their adults regarding what the expectations are regarding completion of these items.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Formative assessment will be ongoing. Unit assessments and/or project options can be included, as well as an end-of-class review guide, summative final exam (and answer key). If wanting assessments or a grade for the class, please communicate with me at the beginning of our class.
Grades Offered
I will provide the optional note-taking guide (student guide), and overview (with optional review and extension activities).
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
The history of the United States course is exciting, interesting, and will undoubtedly include sensitive subjects- as is true of all history when including multiple viewpoints.  I will work hard to ensure discussion remains age-appropriate and pro-actively contact parents if any questionable situations occur.  Examples of sensitive topics include racism, sexism, elitism, land-theft, European-centric ideals, and immigration controversy.
I've taught this class for many years in brick and mortar format and will provide similar judgment and communication regarding issues.
Given the sheer breadth of this course, it would be unreasonable to list all sources used in the development of this course.  Please know that I am a certified, experienced, and qualified social studies teacher, with 15+ years of experience. All of the sources I've consulted and any that I would recommend to learners will be reputable and based on historical research.  A large variety of sources will be included in this course.

Outschool works hard to ensure that classes include multiple viewpoints and provide high-quality content, however, class design and content is commonly stolen by other teachers/organizations, so I am hesitant to provide more detail regarding my sources or how I incorporate them. Great effort has gone into designing this class and incorporating a large variety of resources and materials. Therefore, I am providing a general list of sources that I use, but not the specific resources, and any adult (or learner) needing more details about the sources used for class content can contact me and I'm happy to share more specifics.
