Description

Class Experience

Students will learn to analyze primary source documents and be able to discuss their own perceptions of the material within the class.
I have taught U.S. History to secondary students for 8 years. I hold a BA and a MA in History with numerous classes in Native American history.
Longer primary source documents (1-2 pages) will be assigned for outside of class. These readings will not take longer than 1/2 hour to read.
Informal assessment based on class participation.
2 hours per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
