A 5 week online course all about Africa - History, Culture, Environment, Animals and Stories

Class experience

US Grade 4 - 6
Students will learn the history of Africa which is not often taught in its entirety, including cultural knowledge like African Philosophy. Critical Thinking skills will be improved, as will Cultural Empathy. 
I have a BA in both History and Philosophy and an MSc in Psychology. I have also tutored students in all three. I am African, and remain deeply embedded in the continent, with many family and friends all across it, allowing me to have a good current understanding on Africa. Racism is a topic we will discuss, especially around the topic of the colonization on Africa. This is an excellent resource for dealing with such a topic. https://www.redcross.org.uk/get-involved/teaching-resources/talking-with-children-and-young-people-about-race-and-racism. The topic of racism will be handled gently , with time for students to discuss how they feel on the matter.
