Description

Class Experience

By the end of this class, students should be eager to engage in friendly and informed conversation with people from different backgrounds and races. They will understand how to avoid potentially hurtful assumptions and ask questions in an open and accepting manner. They will be more aware of how we share more similarities with "different" people than they initially thought, and they will move closer to a mentality that accepts and embraces all types people as friends, while simultaneously developing appreciation for and curiosity of diverse cultures and races, and seeing past those very differences to realize that we are all one race.
I am teaching this class from my own extensive experience navigating a multi-cultural world. Coming from an ethnically, linguistically, and culturally diverse family, variety has always been part of my life. I've lived in four countries with very different languages, cultures, and ethnicity. I've worked in leadership in organizations geared to First Nations (Native American) peoples, as well as African immigrants and mixed-race inner-city environments. My own marriage crosses these lines as my husband is Haitian and I am American. Currently we live in the Dominican Republic where my work is in helping the Haitian and Dominican young people to learn to understand and appreciate each other and to work together as they lead these two very diverse nations towards a brighter future. 
Students will each be assigned a different culture to contrast with their own. They will do a 2-4 minute presentation on how the people in that culture are just like them, and how they are unique. They will list their favorite things about their research culture and give examples of questions they would ask someone from that culture to better understand them and build a friendship.
Access to online search capabilities.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
Students will be evaluated by written report from the instructor, based on their participation, interaction, and respect in classes. They will also be evaluated on their final presentation with a teacher-written summary provided for the parents or guardians. 
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
There is potential for this class to dip into somewhat sensitive subject matter. The hope is that learners in this class would be made up of those already positive and interested in the uniqueness and beauty of different cultures, but that cannot be completely guaranteed. Please be sure to read the entire description and to communicate any concerns with me. If you are uncertain of whether or not your child would be suitable for this class, we can discuss that matter together prior to your registering.
