Join me as we examine the impact that European powers and the United States have had as they tried to spread their influence around the globe. This class will cover the Opium Wars, The Boer Wars, the Spanish-American War, the Open Door Policy, The opening of Japan, The British Raj, French Indochina, the Russo-Japanese War, and the Scramble for Africa. These events have shaped the world we live in today. This course will be taught using visual aids via PowerPoint in a lecture-based format....
I am a licensed middle school and high Social Studies teacher in the state of Ohio. I have been teaching Social Studies to middle school students for the last four years. I have used this same lesson with students in the classroom and it has always been highly engaging. I also have a Bachelor's degree in both Education and History. Both my teaching license in Integrated Social Studies and my Bachelor's degree in History qualify me to teach this course on European Imperialism.
Homework is always optional. I believe learners would benefit from implementing the information they learn in class, however, I also understand that each learner is unique. Learners will analyze primary source documents and answer comprehension questions based on a primary source. These activities should not take more than one hour to complete.
Learners will be assessed informally in each class through verbal comprehension checks and class discussion. Each class will begin with a quick review of the activities from the previous week's class to ensure students understood the material. At the end of each unit, students will complete a Kahoot, which will act as an informal summative assessment over the course.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
