Description

Class Experience

The goal of this course is to introduce students to the beauty of the African continent and its rich cultures. The continent has become synonymous with poverty, violence, disease, and little mention of the positives. It is my hope that at the end of the course, students will have a deep appreciation for the continent's diversity and the uniqueness of each country we learn about. 

At the end of the course students should be able to:
~Name and locate the region of some countries in Africa and name their capital cities.
~Complete projects that relate to the aspects of culture across the continent.
I have my Bachelors and Masters degrees in Sociology and have taken courses such as Political economies of African States, Sociology of the Third World, Social Development of Africa economies, and Symbolism in Africa amongst others. I have personally researched and studied the continent. 
In addition to my educational background, I grew up in Ghana (West Africa), hence I have had first-hand experience and a good understanding of some of its cultures. 
Students may bring their uncompleted their projects home.
A supply list will be provided in the classroom a week in advance before we begin. Please get the following supplies ready for Day 1: -Glue stick -Scissors -Toothpick -Square styrofoam board ( at least size 12'' by 12'' )
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • blooket for games. We will also make use of other websites to watch videos related to what is being studied.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
We will have lots of hands-on activities or projects to complete each week during the course. While these projects are simple and easy to complete, please stay close to provide some help with using the scissor depending on your child's ability and level of comfort. 

In our fifth meeting, students will be guided to prepare a very simple dish, Chips Mayai from Tanzania. This will require the use of a stove. Students will also need help using a knife and getting other ingredients ready for class.
