Class Experience

Students will learn about the Battle of Gettysburg. 
Students will learn about the climate of America during the Civil War.
Students will get to experience the Gettysburg National Park from wherever they are. 
I have lived 30 minutes from Gettysburg my entire life and have been on countless tours of the battlefield. I will be teaching this course along side my father, who is an expert on the Battle of Gettysburg, delivering tours at the National Park often. 
Each week there will be a few comprehensive worksheets assigned to ensure that the students are understanding what they are reading and listening too. 

There will also be a final project of which the students will need to submit a piece of each week. 

There will be optional reading passages, videos, and other materials that students can choose to do to further their learning. 

I will be posting discussion prompts on the classroom wall each week as well as live check in meetings. 
 7 files available upon enrollment
I will provide comprehensive worksheets that students will need to complete by either printing them out and scanning them back into the computer once complete, taking a picture of the completed work and submitting the picture, or completing a digital copy; if students don't have the ability to print, they can write down the questions and answers on a plain piece of paper and submit that. Learners will need supplies to create their research project which may be as basic or complex as the student's want. Review videos from YouTube may be utilized. Virtual Field Trip videos may need to be accessed through YouTube. Kahoot and other sources may be used for review activities.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Weekly comprehensive worksheets. 
Final Project. 
Class forum discussions.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Although it won't be the focus, we will be discussing the death count and the violence between the Battle of Gettysburg that may be sensitive for some students. This is why the class is directed for middle school aged students and up. 

The books and videos I will be referencing will be mostly directed towards middle school students, so upper level high school students may find the reference content too basic. However, the virtual field trip videos and assignments are suited for middle school and up so it's not necessarily too "young" for some high school students. 

I recommend 6th-9th/10th grade.
