TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I began teaching high school Social Studies in the Chicagoland area upon my graduation from Illinois State University in 2007. I currently teach A.P. U.S. History and American Law. Other courses I have taught over the course of my career include: Integrated Social Science, Human Geography, U.S. History.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I use a Power Point Presentation every single day and thought my presentations would be great to share on this site! My presentations begin with a slide stating the Learning Target(s) of the lesson, as well as corresponding vocabulary terms and the day's agenda. Now that my students have iPads where they can access materials electronically, especially in my A.P. U.S. History class, I have gotten into the habit of creating two presentations for each lesson - one for me to present to the students (this one has more information in it) and a second one for my students to download and follow along with (this one has blanks embedded within it). I would describe my typical lesson as discussion-based, interrupted with a short activity, video clip, or soundbite. All parts of the lesson are displayed in the corresponding Power Point Presentation.
