Class Experience

I have a degree in Cultural Anthropology and am currently in a graduate program for Anthropology. Under the guidance of my professors, I regularly read and analyze literature about different types of governments, economies, and social systems. This academic work guides how I teach students to analyze dystopian stories and elements of society. 

I also have 20+ hours of training on cross-cultural communication, building empathy for youth, and social justice in education through my university, CSULB, and the organization Facing History and Ourselves.  
Learners may need to finish their planning and project at home if it's not done in class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Learners will be encouraged to be creative and empathetic when creating their utopia. Discussions of current politics will be redirected. The focus of this course is on possible futures.
