Come virtually travel the world and study history with me…through food! We will tackle a new food or industry each week. By studying these foods we will learn about history, culture and people from many different countries and time periods. One week is reserved for studying strange or unusual jobs people have had in the food industry throughout history. We will study ancient history to discuss rice and bread. We will study more modern history when we dive into the story of fast food. We will learn the diverse history of noodles, pizza and pie! The list goes on and on. Families will be given a list of foods so students can bring these items to class to sample if they desire.
As always, my ages for class are a suggestion based on the content and conversations that we have in class. This class is designed for those students studying at the middle school learning level. I do not assign homework but I will at times give your child the opportunity to research or learn more outside of class if they so choose.
My class will be hosted on zoom so no special equipment is needed. Just internet access!! I mostly use lecture style and sprinkle in fun videos and pictures to keep students engaged in the class. I offer many opportunities for conversation and questions as well. I use a more casual learning environment that encourages students to love history and leaves them wanting to learn more! I have been teaching both online and in person for several years now. My degree is in history and my passion is helping students love to learn! I hope to see you online this Fall!!
