Class Experience

US Grade 7 - 10
  • Students will learn what precipitated the First World War, how the powers at the time formed alliances and what those alliances were, how the war was fought (particularly the details of trench warfare on the Western front), what the war in the air was like, why American entered the war, and the impact of America's intervention in the war.
I've taught multiple classes in social studies to young learners about the Civil War, World War II, and the Korean War.  My evaluations on these courses are excellent--I'm knowledgable and I cover the violence in context and detail while showing sensitivity.

This course covers a very violent event--World War I.  Individuals who are triggered by details about the fighting should avoid this class.
None of these are required for the course but for anyone interested in a deeper background on WW1, there are several movies that a family would find entertaining and are also consistent and accurate at depicting WW1.  They are:  1917, Journey's End, Beneath Hill 60, Red Baron, The Trench, and A Very Long Engagement (contains nudity).
