Learn all about armored warfare during WWII, but this time in the western theaters of combat! I specifically focus on the war in North Africa and then Northwest Europe (France into Germany.) We will discuss the war in the desert in the earlier part of the war and finish off with the war in Northwest Europe after D-Day. This will allow us to cover early war tanks and late war tanks as well. The structure will include four immersive sessions which will cover armored warfare during the time...
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
I have been teaching military history to elementary students since 2001 and parents have appreciated the approach I use given the age of the students. I try to keep our study away from the more age inappropriate topics, such as The Holocaust, harsh treatment of POW's, etc. It is not that these topics aren't important, it's just that the age range for these lessons (8-14) is a bit on the younger side, so I feel that they are better left to teachers of older grades. When I do get questions about the more disturbing aspects of the war, I might answer along the lines of, "these soldiers went into this country and did not treat the people there well," instead of giving specifics. Having said this, please be aware that these classes are about warfare and military history. One aspect of this is to talk about weapons from the corresponding era, and to discuss advancements in military technology. I don't handle any firearms personally, but we do discuss weapons and technology and I show pictures and videos when appropriate. If your learner is sensitive to this kind of subject, and may get frightened or upset upon seeing a picture of a rifle, cannon, tank or bullet, then this may not be the class for them. This is a class about military history, and there is no way to avoid this, so please take this into account before signing up.
