Most recently taught AP Government and International Relations. During my most recent year of teaching, I served as the Department Chair for the Social Studies Department at my school. I also have experience teaching Geography at the 7th grade level, Street Law at the 10-11th grade level, and 8th grade Civics.
My classroom is typically activities-focused, approaching but not quite fully employing the flipped-classroom model. Students often engage in reading for homework, taking Cornell Notes to demonstrate completion and maintain retention. Class typically starts with a review of the main points, and then quickly shifts to an activity to apply the main ideas. These activities range from analyzing scenarios and primary documents, to preparing and presenting speeches and debates.
