TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I teach US History Government in Southern Maryland.

MY TEACHING STYLE

My teaching style is very student centered. The students are required to read and analyze text frequently. Typically, after a reading, some form of student led discussion is required, such as a Socratic Seminar or Philosophical Chairs.

Yet to be added

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

Bachelors in History and Political Science Masters in Secondary Education

ADDITIONAL BIOGRAPHICAL INFORMATION

After realizing that freshmen and sophomores have a difficult time comprehending primary source documents because of the arcane language, I started rewriting the texts to make them accessible to younger students. I developed a library of nearly 100 documents that all fall between a 8-11th grade reading level on the Flesch-Kincaid scale(all documents on the site contain their scale score).
