The student should be able to name key events and interesting happenings in the time of the Rise of the Ottoman Empire starting after the fall of Constantinople Students will also learn in depth about one person or event from the time frame and try to glean some life lessons from that. Students will learn how to plan and execute a podcast or video about the subject they choose.
I have a Masters Degree in Education and have been an avid history enthusiast for as long as I can remember. The area around the Mediterranean is the most important area for the development and continued existence of western culture and so has had most of my 30 years worth of study committed to it. Egyptians, Greek, Romans, Ottomans, and Mongols all have a part to play and so this topic is one of my big 5.
Unless the students has permission from a parent, the homework for this class is a requirement. That means that at the end of the 12 weeks if the homework is not all completed the student will be withdrawn with no refund. Homework will be to listen to podcasts and/or watch videos assigned. Notes should be taken and the assigned questions should be answered. At the end of the class students' homework will change to 2 weeks to prepare and record a 5-10 minute podcast episode on a topic of their choosing from what they learned.
Students will need a notebook and pen/pencil to take notes and make plans. They will also need a device that can record audio and a program to record it with (phone usually have both of these built in, Windows computers can get "Audacity" for free. There are free programs for Macbooks as well.
The student will have 2 projects, on one figure or event, that needs to be completed before the final week of class.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
This is a history with a lot of war. There will be violence talked about at times, usually from direct quotes.
