I am a licensed middle school and high Social Studies teacher in the state of Ohio. I have been teaching Social Studies to middle and high school students for the last four years. I have used this same lesson with students in the classroom and it has always been highly engaging. I also have a Bachelor's degree in both Education and History.

Both my teaching license in Integrated Social Studies (grades 7-12) and my Bachelor's degree in History qualify me to teach this introductory course on the American Civil War.
Homework is always optional. I believe learners would benefit from implementing the information they learn in class, however, I also understand that each learner is unique. Learners will analyze primary source documents and answer comprehension questions based on a primary source.  These activities should not take more than one hour to complete
All materials will be supplied by the teacher.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learners will be assessed informally in each class through verbal comprehension checks and class discussion. Each class will begin with a quick review of the activities from the previous week's class to ensure students understood the material. At the end of each unit, students will complete a Kahoot which will act as an informal summative assessment of the unit.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This course utilizes Kahoot as a means of assessing student understanding of the stated learning goals.
