Learning French! · Summer Camp Session

Orientation

We will get to know each other and do several icebreakers. Afterwards, we can start finding and using good resources that I’ve been recommended with and ones I use when learning the language. These resources will help you to better learn French and understand French culture. You can ask me questions about life in France, history of the country and language, and more. I will do my best to answer them.

Learning French!

    8th session

We will go through the basics of the language, this will be taught in American English. I will go through conjugations, types of verbs, daily words and activities, common expressions, and tenses. I can move forward with the topics you would like as long as the other learners can agree upon this as well. The times and the dates of the sessions are subject to change, if you would like a certain time, I can do my best to try and schedule a session then.

🌏 Discussion & Debates 🌍

Get ready for lively conversations and debates. Each session has its own unique topic. The sessions are highly participatory 🗣️ and require your full engagement. As much as the sessions are about the content, they are the people 👨‍👨‍👧and the unique perspectives you all bring to the Zoom 📺room. Note: this series is indefinite ♾️. I'll keep adding new sessions. Join if you're interested in getting updates every time we host a new session. You can choose which ones to attend.

LGBTQ+ Studies

    8th session

Hi there! I know this isn't a conventional course, but if you're here, something drew you to it, so I welcome you! We'll go through key historical developments of queer movements, learn multi-dimensional frameworks to study queerness, get exposure to a wide array of sources focusing on queer voices and visibility, and have discussions in a safe space about queer history and its modern implications to ultimately gain background knowledge necessary to have conversations about topics that are still stigmatized, excluded, erased, or ignored today. You can expect to participate in a lot of different activities to learn (maybe even about yourself!) and engage with others. I won't ever lecture for the whole time--I want to incorporate time for us to talk about what we learn; that's the point of this course! :)

US Senate Simulation

    7th session

Welcome to the United States Senate, the upper house of Congress (the American legislature)! After a brief introduction to American government, learners will become senators for the summer. Will you join a political party or stay independent? Will you compromise with other senators to get laws passed or stand your ground and stay true to what you believe in? Will you engage in fiery debate on the Senate floor or stay quiet and trade votes in the shadows? Perhaps most frightening, what will you do in the face of serious international and domestic crises? It's all up to you in what has been dubbed the "greatest deliberative body in the world"! Note: Each American state gets two senators for representation in the real US Senate. Depending on interest in this series, maximum registration numbers may be changed and the Senate may be scaled down/up. Additionally, there will be no House of Representatives (the lower house of Congress) in this simulation, simplifying the legislative process.

Preparing for AP US Government and Politics

    Starts

Designed by the College Board, the AP US Government and Politics course “provides a college-level, nonpartisan introduction to key political concepts, ideas, institutions, policies, interactions, roles, and behaviors that characterize the constitutional system and political culture of the United States.” Through comprehensive study and analysis of foundational political doctrines, fundamental Supreme Court cases, and modern interpretations of the two, the course provides students with a holistic overview of the theoretical principles of American Government and practical applications throughout history and in the modern day. For more information, visit the course's website and Course and Exam Description: https://apcentral.collegeboard.org/courses/ap-united-states-government-and-politics ABOUT THIS SERIES: This three-week SHW series is designed to introduce prospective learners to some of the course's core concepts with an emphasis on the foundational documents and required US Supreme Court cases through short lectures, Q&A sessions, and analyses of primary sources. This course will NOT cover all content tested on the exam. PRE-REQUISITES: No formal pre-requisite knowledge is necessary, but learners should have a basic knowledge of foundational US history and the workings of the US Government through lower-level humanities courses and current events. Learners should also be open to rote memorization and quickly writing full and syntactically correct sentences. SYLLABUS: 1. Dawn of a New Constitution (2 Sessions) 2. The US Constitution: Seven Foundational Articles and Three Branches of Government (2 Sessions) 3. The US Constitution: The Bill of Rights (2 Sessions) 4. From Civil Rights for Some to Civil Liberties for All (2 Sessions) NOTE: Additional sessions for office hours and/or FRQ practices will be added as seen fit as we go on. REMINDER: The CB explicitly declares holding no political conflicts of interest or partisan bias in the creation of the course. As such, I will also deliver content without personal biases. While healthy discussion and debate may be relevant to some topics, learners must remain respectful of each other's backgrounds and beliefs at all times.

Introduction to Korean Summer Camp I! 🌏🚀

    15th session

안녕하세요! This series will be hosted by two tutors: Vince K—an amazing tutor who is teaching Algebra II and PreCalc in SHW—and me. (Link to Vince's profile: https://schoolhouse.world/u/51495) In this series, we will learn the basics of Korean Hangul, grammar, and vocabulary. This series is well-planned with informative Google Slides and fun activities to make the best place to learn Korean. This series also has zero homework so that you can relax during the weekend! We will mainly focus on speaking and listening, but we will sometimes explore reading and writing in Korean. We will also learn about culture of Korea and discuss Korean history, K-Pop/K-Drama, and the modern Korean lifestyle. Office hours are available on Saturdays. (You can request it too!) We will also have game nights on Fridays, so you can have fun! The schedule for the series is out! 🚀✨🗓️ Schedule: https://bit.ly/3KyYgYI Here are some resources when you want to study Korean off the clock! ⏰📈 https://rb.gy/lzdydy Btw, since this series is "almost full," I have created another class that goes over the same thing we are learning in this class. (But in a different time) ✅🚀 https://schoolhouse.world/series/1760

Extempore TEDxSchoolhouse

    7th session

Ever wanted to take part in extempore TEDx Talks? Ever wanted to improve your impromptu speaking skills? Well, this is the series for you! Welcome to the inaugural Schoolhouse Extempore TEDx Talks 🎉! In this series, we’ll be having sessions where you will get the chance to test out and improve your skills in extempore talks as well as pick up tips to do well in speaking impromptu. In the first session, we’ll be going through tips on how to do well in these extempore TEDX Talks along with some talk examples and then thereafter, it will be your chance to speak! HOW EXTEMPORE TED TALKS WORK In extempore TEDx Talks, you are randomly given a topic to speak on and given 60 seconds to gather your thoughts, after which you are given 4 minutes to speak along with an additional extra one minute if needed. But don’t worry, we won’t give you just 1 minute to think right from our first session. Since we also want to include beginners and help you improve your skills, we’ll start out with 3 minutes, and gradually decrease the thinking time until it reaches 1 minute. WHO CAN PARTICIPATE If you have vast experience in extempore talks and just want to brush up your skills and take part, or if you’re a complete beginner looking to start out, the series is for you! Anyone who’s interested can take part, regardless of your experience. If you’re a bit shy and worried about not doing well, don’t worry, we’re all here to learn and the only way we can learn is by practising!

This series is just the second part--on the role of government (liberty v. equality). How we structure each session will be based on this guide: http://www.greatbooks.org/wp-content/uploads/2014/12/Shared-Inquiry-Handbook.pdf Sessions will be added continually.
