As an ESL Teacher and Tutor, I have taught classes on African American history, Asian American history, Native American history, American Figures, racism, and the civil rights movement for over 4 years. I have experience in teaching this subject to students in elementary, middle, and high school. I also have experience tutoring college students. I have a degree in Communications, so I will be able to communicate and teach this topic without being bias. I was able to research, write essays, and give speeches about this topic throughout college. I was trained by professionals to understand history and the issues surrounding history. Most importantly, I will allow each student to express their thoughts and opinions about this topic. This will help them communicate and show what they have learned. It is very important to include all students. I have taught African American history for 2 years. I studied communications in colleges which heavily focused on African, Asian, and Native American studies.
We will have discussions about xenophobia (Racism) and how this played a big role in the denial of citizenship and rights in America.
We will refer to the -U.S. Constitution. (14th Amendment) - Supreme Court Case -UNITED STATES v. WONG KIM ARK
