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 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 (grades 7-12) and my Bachelor's degree in History qualify me to teach this introductory course on the Russian Revolution.
Homework Offered
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.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
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.
Grades Offered
All materials will be supplied by the teacher but may need to be printed out.

This course is centered on one of the deadliest revolutions and governments in modern history. While I do not include any images that one might consider overly graphic, we will discuss the assassination of the Romanov family and the Great Purge which resulted in the deaths of millions of people over the course of Joseph Stalin's rule.
