Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will practice literacy skills such as comprehension while fostering a sense of history.
Students will examine various historical characters to gain a better understanding of their life and times. 
Students will understand that real history is more than just names and dates and even famous people make mistakes.
I have been teaching middle school Medieval World History and Geography for 16 years in public school. I am a highly qualified certified history teacher for grades 7-12 and I majored in secondary history education. 
All students need a copy of the book "How They Choked: Failures, Flops, and Flaws of the Awfully Famous" by Georgia Bragg.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This book looks at the failures, flops, and flaws of historical figures. Also the story on Anne Boleyn will include discussion on Henry's many wives and affairs though in an age appropriate way
