Class Experience

Students will gain an understanding of the Civil Rights Movement.
I have worked in very diverse public schools for about 10 years.  I am passionate about teaching learners about equality through literature.
No materials are needed for this course.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Week 4 does include mention of the Black Lives Matter Movement, however, it is brief and there is no mention of the violence and riots.  Given recent events, learners often bring up the protests and violence.  I allow the students to share their feelings and we talk about safe ways to voice their concerns, keeping the discussion age appropriate.   Please feel free to message me with any questions you may have about what will be shared.  I am happy to share this with you ahead of time.

The Ku Klux Klan is NOT discussed in this course.  This course is focused on the peaceful protests in the Civil Rights movement.
