10 years public high school (US History, World History, Geography) in south Chicago suburbs; 4+ years private middle school ("social studies" with free range to do as I felt necessary, tying all aspects of social studies to a broad World/US History timeline) in West St. Louis County
I strongly believe in following a timeline - something for students to be able to connect to and go back to - while creating themes and recognizing patterns within a time and place. Even as a Middle School teacher, I reference various aspects of high school AP courses.
