Description

Class Experience

Students will learn about European life and the continents history, culture, & food. We'll learn about 12 different countries and other minor states (Andorra, Vatican City, Luxemburg, etc). We'll practice the different languages of each country. This course is not intended to be a language course, rather language is used to enhance the students understanding of the culture.

We'll also explore European Union's purpose and its role as Europes central government. Students will engage in independent thinking and creative learning, and be asked to participate in discussion in each lesson.
I have studied European history, German history, humanities, and art history at the graduate level. Last year I had the privilege of living in Europe and visited many of the countries we will discuss in our camp. I'll use photos from my travels to create a more immersive 'travel' experience, and can answer students questions on modern European culture while providing historical context.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
There will be no formal assessment for this summer camp. We're here to learn, have fun, and get excited about the history and culture of Europe.
3 hours 20 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
In this camp we will discuss European history, including events such as the plague, the holocaust, WWI & WWII. All content will be age appropriate and historically accurate.
