    ABOUT THE CLASS

     

    Jered has taught various Social Studies grade levels and curriculums in his 10+ years as a professional educator. His goal in teaching Social Studies is to make the curriculum relevant to the lives of his students. He uses many of his own experiences to guide the delivery and instruction in Economics to prepare students for their own personal financial lives. When teaching Government, Jered tends to focus on the evolution of the law and how that may impact his students. Jered loves a good story but realizes that most students learn history best by doing history. So Jered uses numerous strategies, types of assignments, and plays to the various types of learning to make the stories of history come alive.
