I have been an educator on Outschool since February of 2018. I have my MBA and MHA, both of which have taught me the value of conducting research and asking questions.  I have a passion for history and learning. You can usually find me in the middle of 2-3 books or watching a documentary. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
This class will touch on the political ideologies of capitalism and communism. These topics will only be used in the context of understanding the differences between the two sides. 

There may be some Youtube videos that are seen during this class. I will share my screen and learners will not need to access them on their own.
