2023 CLASSES: World History - 8-12th Grade

The Constitution only gives people the right to pursue happiness. You have to catch it yourself.
- Benjamin Franklin -
Class Description

Through readings and answering questions in the textbook, participating in discussions, acting out historical simulations, and playing games we will learn about world history. Don’t forget about a sprinkling of the unique facts and issues of world history you might not have heard about.

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.

Other Materials Required:

   Glencoe World History by Jackson J. Spielvogel, National Geographic

            2nd edition, Copyright 2005

            ISBN – 0-07-860702-7

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.
