Description

Class Experience

Emotions are vague.  My goal is to bring awareness to their emotions and make them think of emotions differently.  This simple awareness will help them discover that emotions are different for everyone.  I hope this cultivates more empathy for each other and helps in our collaborative world. 
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and no time outside of class.
I refer to the work of Lisa Feldman Barret.  Her book is called "How Emotions are Made: The Secret Life of the Brain".

Paul Ekman:https://www.paulekman.com/universal-emotions/ 
He is the psychologist responsible for our current discussion of emotions.  His work is contradictory to that of Lisa Feldman Barret.
