2023 CLASSES: World History - 4th-7th Grade

2009 toga party.jpg
Class Description
Each time we meet we will learn about a famous person, place, or event in world history.  Then of course we will play games and make crafts to enrich our studies.  Expect a few simulations and some famous people to visit us and tell about their life.
I use a variety of learning experiences to enliven and motive the class and approach all learning styles such as auditory, visual, tactile, and kinesthetic. PowerPoint presentations, videos, discussions, activities, critical thinking and problem-solving issues, games, and simulations will all be used in class.
There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosophy.

Meet The Teacher

Hello! I'm Susan Bacon, director of Franklin School. I have a B.S. in Education with a minor in Gifted Education. I'm a state certified teacher with 5 years public school teaching experience and 35 years of working with students. Through private tutoring, teaching homeschool classes, and working with homeschooling families I have found that my greatest joy in life is helping students find their own unique way of learning.

After working as a cover school coordinator for 5 years I founded Franklin School. I saw a need to provide families with a more creative learning experience with a larger variety of activities. As director of Franklin School these past 20 years I have offered homeschooling families curriculum assistance, transcripts, a lending library, activities, classes, field trips, parent workshops, and many other homeschooling amenities. 

As a certified and very experienced teacher my goal is to assist parents by offering support in all areas of homeschooling and to help enrich each student’s educational adventure by offering a variety of classes.
