    I am looking for any number of people to help me in the creation of content for a year long course on u.s. history that starts from native life to the end of reconstruction.

    My goals for this course, besides providing my students with the greatest story ever told, is to help them gain the following skills: learn how to critically think so that they can solve problems, learn how to write a proper paragraph so that they can write at least a 5 paragraph essay, learn proper reading comprehension skills, and finally learn how function in class/public.

    A little back story about me. I am 28, male work in an urban school setting with a high poverty rate. I want to create engaging lessons and at least project a quarter. My goal is to start this process after spring break. I am just trying to gather team members now.

    If you are interested message me.
