Description

Class Experience

My degree in Journalism has given me the knowledge and experience to tackle highly controversial topics like racism through an unbiased mindset. By looking at multiple perspectives and character analysis we will discuss all topics with an open mind and soft heart.

I graduated with Honors from Long Island University with my BFA in Journalism. I have worked as an Editorial Assistant for publications in NYC and LI. I am also very active in my local homeschool community and have been working one on one with children and their families. My workshops consist of growth mindset, writing help and reading assistance. I have worked with older middle school and high school level children for many years. I believe my education and life skills plus my hands on experience and desire to connect and inspire our youth is exactly what the learners in my classes respond to. 
A copy of the book
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will discuss these topics by using the text as our guide. Our conversations will remain based on the book and it’s contents. We will discuss the importance of empathy and understanding and I will reiterate that this class is based on the book itself not our own personal belief systems. 

From Common Sense Media:
Parents need to know that Orson Scott Card's Ender's Game is a gripping and emotional sci-fi novel, originally published in 1985, that will appeal to older tweens and teens. It's a dystopian novel about kids trained from age 6, mostly by playing computer games, to find a way to wipe out an entire species of alien invaders. The violence is at times quite brutal, as kids kill other kids. And main character Ender is admired for his ruthlessly efficient violence, though he himself is disturbed by it. Some bullying by an older brother is intense and disturbing, and the conclusion to the story is shocking. Author Card is an outspoken proponent of racist and homophobic views. They don't appear in this novel, but they have gotten wide exposure in articles, essays, and social media in recent years. The release of the 2013 film adaptation of the novel was accompanied by controversy due to Card's expressed views and political writings.
