I am a licensed middle school and high Social Studies teacher in the state of Ohio. I have been teaching Social Studies to middle and high school students for the last four years. I have used this same unit 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 (grades 7-12) and my Bachelor's degree in History qualify me to teach this introductory course on the Golden Age of Monarchy.
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.
All materials will be supplied by the teacher but may need to be printed out.
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 of the unit.
50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
