Description

Class Experience

When students complete this class, they should be able to look at any historic document and "source" it. They will be able to determine who the author is, what the author's authority is, when the source was written and if that date impacts the source's reliability. 
They will also know how to take two accounts of the same story and pull corroborating facts out.
They will know how to determine which sources are reliable and which are not.
They will know what primary and secondary sources are.
They will learn key events and concepts in modern World History including World War II, the Cuban Missile Crisis, China's Cultural Revolution, the Cold War, genocide, and more. 
I have been studying history almost my entire life and earned both an undergraduate and graduate degree in history, though my Masters is in American Studies. I have been teaching both World and US History in person to homeschoolers for several years and have been teaching history on Outschool for almost as long.
Students will be given homework some weeks. All homework will be given in pdf form so that students can print the worksheets or they can upload the pdf to kamiapp.com and type directly onto the pdf. 

Students are strongly encouraged to either watch Crash Course (or similar) videos or read a World History book of their choosing that covers that topics we are discussing in class. All reading and/or video watching will be done as homework.
Students will be given pdfs each week that contain the in-class work and homework. These pdfs need to be printed or if the student prefers to type answers, pdfs can be uploaded to the Kami App website and students can type directly onto the pdfs. Students are strongly encouraged to either watch Crash Course (or similar) videos or read a World History book of their choosing that covers that topics we are discussing in class.
Student progress will be assessed through their in-class work and homework.
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
As with any World History course, we will be covering topics like death, war, racism, slavery, sex, violence, and sexism. I will not shy away from these topics, but will help the students understand that though racism, slavery, sexism, etc. are part of the fabric of World History, they are not acceptable by our standards today.

If your learner chooses to use the Kami app, they will be using an external website. 
Most sources used in this class are primary sources from the time period we are studying. They are sources from a wide range of ethnicities, geographical regions, backgrounds, and time periods. Any information that is not from a primary source will be from either Stanford Education or  what is referred to as “common knowledge,” in other words things like dates, names, events, etc. that are common knowledge to anyone who has studied the topic.
