Class Experience

I am a graduate of the University of California, Davis, where I received my BA in communication with a triple minor in English, history and writing. I hold a valid California single subject teaching credential in English, with a supplementary credential in social studies.
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.
The information in this course will be sourced from Volume 2 of "The American Yawp," a free, online, collaboratively built American history textbook that has been written by over 300 historians. While “The American Yawp” is formatted as one textbook in two volumes, it is a really wonderful source because it isn’t written by one or two authors or even a small group of contributors. Instead, it has been written (and is continually updated) by hundreds of college level instructors, which allows it to “incorporate transnational perspectives, integrate diverse voices, recover narratives of resistance, and explore the complex process of cultural creation.” 

In addition to "The American Yawp," this course will also source information archived in the Library of Congress, the research library that officially serves the United States Congress. We will mix in a variety of sources, including, but not limited to: books/printed material, maps, manuscripts, newspapers and periodicals, personal narratives, photos/prints/drawings, and video and audio recording clips. 

The material for this class will be presented from an objective standpoint based on multiple viewpoints and perspectives that exist on many social, political, and historical issues. We will eliminate bias by consistently looking at multiple perspectives of the various historical events that we will learn about.
