Description

Class Experience

I am offering this course because I homeschool my children and I design classes for them on a regular basis. I designed and taught this class to my daughter and some of her friends. They really enjoyed it and it was a great supplement to students learning U.S. History. 

 I have been teaching 20 plus years in various capacities. I have taught k-12 here in the U.S. as well as in Central America. I homeschool my own children with experiential learning including extensive travel to different countries, immersing in different cultures, as an integral part of our curriculum. I also have taught for National University's Education department for the past 15 years. I teach in the teaching credential program. Among the many classes that I have taught, The Diverse Classroom and Multicultural Education are among them. 

In my background as an educator and in developing social studies curriculum, I have collaborated with many educators on how to cover these history topics. I have also attended workshops and trainings in the experiences of marginalized groups that have provided me with an understanding of these groups experiences and the historical context for American discriminatory action and thoughts. I am here to provide a historical outlook and provide insight into what was happening in history, but am not here to provide an in depth look at discrimination or the experiences of marginalized groups. 

The books may seem to portray generalizations about a certain people. We must remember each family and even each individual person in a certain place or of a certain culture are different. These books are a representation of a certain part of a culture and time period. We will learn that it is often beneficial to put forth an effort to understand one another and show mercy toward others. Whether people are of a different age, race, or shape, we can exercise to be kind.

I love facilitating, designing, guiding and sharing knowledge with students. 

 
We will have weekly assignments (mostly vocabulary or finishing up in class activities). Students will be responsible for reading the next book of the series as well. There is an ongoing project due at the end of the 2 months.

Students will need to purchase the complete set of American Girl Doll books for Felicity. They can also be checked out from the local library. Each week the materials list will be provided for the following class. Below, are two activities that will require supplies. Materials: If a handout is required, it will be posted prior to the class that it is needed. We will be doing an experiment with yeast (week 4). This will require yeast, sugar, a balloon, and water bottle. We will be baking bread (week 5). This will require yeast, flour, sugar, and water
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Parental guidance may be needed in assisting the student in homework. There will be two in class activities (week 4 and 5) that might require parent assistance depending on your child's skill level. There is a 4 student minimum in this class. Please share the class with others. If the minimum number is not met within 72 hours of the class, the class will either a) pushed back to start at a later date or b) canceled.
