Learners will learn about notable people in the african diaspora.
In college I took African American studies classes. As a black American, I am embedded in the culture, but those classes helped me look even further into the figures who helped shape our our world. This exposure made me want to spark the same awareness and appreciation in our youngest learners through this class.
Learners will be invited but not required to research and share the name and accomplishments of a black person. This can be very simple, and does not need to be formal.
Each week, the list of needed materials for the following class will be sent out a couple days before the class meeting. You can also look at the class syllabus to plan ahead for the upcoming weeks. Please note that the syllabus may change slightly deepening on the needs of the class.
