Description

Class Experience

My background includes an AS in History (SOCIAL SCIENCEs), a BS in Elementary and Special Education, and Teacher’s Licensure for K-8 in Virginia. My under-graduate studies included a study of Islam in its varying degrees of worship as well as Middle Eastern History.  Subsequently, my post-graduate study and additional training has been in cultural diversity and its subsequent effects on the classroom and communities around the world.  After having lived in the Middle East for several months, I have experienced first hand the conflict of religious belief/ worship and the political controversy which define stateless nations and their ongoing challenges.  
'Homework' consists of reading/ perusing the reference text, working on suggested challenge activities and preparation of a final presentation during the last class.  For the reference text, the goal is familiarity and building connections to previous knowledge- try and peruse the content weekly and it will prepare your learner for our class discussion.   

Additional challenge and enrichment activities, video links and topics/ literature specific to geography are included for your reference to further supplement your study during outside class time.  Challenge Activities are NOT required; however, I’d love for the students to share in class if they chose to complete them!  No background knowledge is required.    
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Comprehension of the content is assessed as we progress through the course via weekly reviews, narrations and suggested essay topics every week- including occasional presentations. 
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Teaching human geography includes presenting historical context in an age- appropriate manner, acknowledging and presenting multiple perspectives.  When we address these issues, I will follow-up with parental notification/ communication of the student’s concerns about any sensitive subjects which are identified as parental guidance issues-ie. imperialism/ land theft, war, ethnic cleansing/ genocide, discrimination, and disease.
