Emmett Till was a 14-year-old African American boy who was viciously kidnapped and murdered after being accused of offending a white woman by the name of Carolyn Bryant. His perpetrators, who were white, did not get punished for the heinous crimes they committed, even after they admitted what they did. Neither Emmett nor his family were granted justice by the court because of the color of their skin. This story sent shockwaves around the world, especially when Emmett Till's brave mother,...
As an ESL Teacher and Tutor, I have taught classes on African 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.
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
In this class, we will be covering topics related to racism, unjust actions, lynching, inequality, laws, and hate crimes that went on in America. Emmett Till's story is a difficult topic (explaining the normality of crimes committed on African Americans in the Jim Crow era) but its important that his story is truthfully told without being sugarcoated. This class is related to all of my other classes, in terms of how people of color were mistreated and how they handled these situations (during the Civil Rights Movement) Again, we will have a discussion about the murder of Emmett Till and how he did not receive any justice for what took place.
