Class Experience

Students will go deeper into their learning of African culture around the diaspora.
I have taught & developed several African social studies/ELA courses and curriculum for learners 5-13. I use my experience as an Afrikan descendant and continue ongoing research into these topics. I take care to navigate sensitive topics and create space for learners to relate to the material. I approach the material with honesty and respect for Afrikans across time and space. Parents/learners can always feel free to ask me for more material to continue their research into the topics after/before class. 
All materials are listed in the week by week breakdown. Though specific materials will be needed for certain classes, learners will always need paper and pencils. If learners do not have access to the specific week's materials, they can absolutely substitute with paper and pencil. Everything can be found in house or outside. No need to buy anything from the store (unless you do not have specific ingredients for final cooking lesson)
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Informal assessment at the end of each class to review what has been learned throughout
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Instructor will be using google slides to present information. Students do not need to access this on their own. Instructor may show videos to support the lesson of the week. Videos will be age appropriate and directly related to that week's topic. Videos can be sent out to parents in advance if necessary. Some of the materials used will require parental guidance such as: scissors, glue, paint, clay, and water. Adequate space, shoes, and hydration will be needed for the Afro Samurais lesson, as we will be doing a short yoga meditation. The final class will require adult supervision as we will be creating the seasoning for Independence Soup. Parents should chop vegetables prior to class in order to reduce risk for injury. Please review ingredient list prior to class to be sure it is free of child's allergies.  Clips of live performances of Fela Kuti will also be used. Songs will be free of explicit content and can be posted in classroom prior to class. All topics will generate meaningful discussion and curiosity. The instructor will take care to handle these topics honestly and with care.
