I am a teacher with global experience. I have lived and taught in 3 different countries. I'm excited about the opportunity to share my love of cultures and geography (especially maps!) with learners. I'm an enthusiastic teacher and plan my classes to include practical educational experiences.

This course is being drawn from a National Geographic curriculum. Any informational materials needed by students will be provided by the teacher. A student may need to do research on their own to complete an assignment but information will be freely available on safe websites such as YouTube, Google Earth and National Geographic. Students may need to access items for practical projects such as poster board, computer paper, writing and drawing utensils, glue, etc
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Learner progress* will be evaluated according to the US Common Core Standards adopted by most states. Feedback will be provided in a learner report at the end of class in the following areas for learners grades 6-8:
- Students will receive feedback on their ability to use textual support for evidence, determine central ideas and identify key steps of history/social studies related. 
- Students will receive feedback on their use of history/social studies vocabulary, understand how the text presents information (sequentially, comparatively, etc.), and identify any texts that reveal an author’s point of view or purpose (loaded language, exclusion of facts, etc.)
- Students will receive feedback on their ability to integrate visual information into their work, distinguish between styles of text (fact vs. opinion) and identify a primary and secondary source on the same topic. 
- Students will receive feedback on their ability to read and comprehend texts independently. 

This will meet Common Core Standards for US students related to CCSS.ELA-LITERACY.RH.6-8.1-10. If you have a student from another country with educational standards please email me and I will do my best to adjust my feedback to reflect those standards if possible.

*Learner reports will only be provided if students complete and return assignments in the classroom or to the teacher directly.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
