I love learning about history and its effects on the world. I have a B.A. from Columbia University in History. I also have over 10 years of experience teaching African American History to students in Kindergarten to 8th grade. I would love to have the opportunity to share my love of history with your child.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Dear Parents, Please be aware that this class will cover the sensitive topic of racism against others based on skin color. Specifically, discrimination between Blacks and Whites in the United States. This class will not focus on the origin of racism in America or the Black Lives Matter Movement. Students will review the definitions of race, racism, segregation, and anti-racism. In addition, we will review how segregation impacted the lives of Blacks in the United States. We will also discuss civil rights, and the non-violent ways people stood up against racism in the United States during the Civil Rights Movement. Then, students will examine the ways they can stand up against racism present in the United States today. Students will be encouraged to participate and share their opinions. I will guide the conversation. The ultimate goal is to make children aware that all people should be treated fairly, and there are many ways to fight for justice and anti-racism. Sincerely, Teacher Jameelah
