Description

Class Experience

I'm a National Geographic Certified Educator with global experience who has been teaching Geography on Outschool for 3 years. I have lived and taught in 3 different countries. I'm excited about the opportunity to share my love of cultures and geography with learners. I'm an enthusiastic teacher and plan my classes to include practical educational experiences. 

As a youth worker and project-based educator by training (Master's Degree) and experience, a lover of history and a frequent traveler, this seemed like the perfect fit for me. I have over 10 years experience bringing complex (and frankly sometimes boring) topics to life for learners ages 11-18. 

In addition to having my Master’s degree I have a personal interest in Geography and History and working with marginalized groups, including underserved youth in the UK, Rwandan refugees (and survivors of the 1994 genocide) and the youth in public housing communities in the US. I have travelled extensively worldwide and lived in different cultures taking my Geographical understanding beyond the textbook. I have the research skills from my Master’s to do ethical and complete research to go beyond the “classic history” to find out the real story by using texts that include BIPOC authors. I have the experience and knowledge to handle questions and these subjects in an age appropriate, historically accurate and sensitive way.

For one time and multi-week classes I provide a 10% discount (please contact me for discount) for:

This course is being drawn from facts from a World Cultures and Geography 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 typical household items for practical projects such as poster board, computer paper, writing and drawing utensils, glue, paint, etc. Extra supplies they will need: Newspaper and glue for paper mache project
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Learner progress will be evaluated according to the US Common Core Standards and National Standards of Social Studies for Geography adopted by most states. Feedback will be provided in an ungraded learner report or graded report card within 1-2 weeks after class ends.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
In this class we discuss the history of countries that include war, famine, slavery and the genocide in Cambodia. We will also be discussing Hiroshima and Nagasaki and viewing visuals from the aftermath of the atomic bomb drop in 1945 as well as the Tiananmen Square protest and massacre. We will explore the experience of the indigenous peoples of these areas and their experiences with colonization. 
This class expands on the outlines provided by traditional Geography textbooks published by National Geographic and McDougall Littell using reputable and reviewed historical and geographical sources.
