Description

Class Experience

Students will come away from this class with an understanding of how these stories from around the world have shaped some of our modern traditions.
I have taught social studies and history as a tutor, substitute teacher, and homeschool teacher, and therefore have experience in covering sensitive topics that involve death and religion in a manner appropriate for children. Per Outschool policy, no religion will be discussed outside of its effect on global cultural traditions.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Since many winter traditions and festivals are derived from religious practices and beliefs, we will discuss how belief systems can help shape culture. This will include some ancient pagan beliefs (i.e. Yule and Imbolc) and Christianity (and how ancient holidays turned into some of the modern Christian ones).
