I currently teach high school in the Bronx, NY. Therefore my lessons are aligned to the global and US history regents exam, but also try to challenge students beyond the information that is on the exam.
The focus in my classroom is to let the students do most of the work. The handouts I give everyday have very clear instructions so all students can follow along with the lesson and there is no confusion. I try to always add "extension" work for higher level students so every student is busy the entire period. I like doing creative projects and having students get out of their seat as often as possible.
Yet to be added
I went to the University of Virginia and majored in History and Political Philosophy, Policy, and Law. I received a Master's in Teaching Adolescent Social Studies from Fordham University and a Master's in Education Leadership, Policy, and Advocacy from NYU.
Most of my lessons are created in Word Document and are very easy to edit depending on the length of your class and the information you want to emphasize. If there are any problems with the instructions or the formatting when you download the lesson please let me know and I am happy to update the documents and make any changes!
