Average rating:5.0Number of reviews:(2)
In this two week course learners will discover that Liberty, Freedom and Justice don't apply equally according to ethnicity and race.

Class experience

Students will learn about the ugly truths of racism in the United States of America.  This course is not for the children of parents who wish to shield their children from the facts that our nation plotted to limit the growth and movement of Black Americans in this country.
As a graduate student with three courses remaining before obtaining a M.Ed in School Counseling and Educational Leadership for Linguistically Diverse Populations, a Certified Teacher and Black American parent of Black American boys who have attended primarily white institutions of learning, I possess both the academic and personal experience to lead learners in inquiry based conversations that will allow them to discover biases that might frame their thinking about Black Americans  and share anecdotal as well as published experiences of being in the minority in academic and social settings.  My coursework, focuses on culture, ethnicity, race, social emotional learning  and the laws which created or hindered the participation of black and brown children in American public schools and the societal pressure which influenced the passing of those laws.  I currently teach fifth grade in a major metropolitan Inner City Title I school where  race, culture and diversity are discussed daily in class and not just during social studies.
Though this course will cover slavery and injustice, due to the age of the student, violence and acts of violence are omitted from the course.  We will discuss that slaves were whipped, but no other forms of punishment or torture.  With regard to modern injustices against Black Americans we will discuss police brutality, but not killing.
