Diversity and Inclusion Camp (ages 9-11): Be an Upstander!

During this interactive camp, we will explore various marginalized groups and movements (e.g. Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ rights, DREAMers, disabilities) and how to be an upstander (for anything you support or believe in).

Class Experience

The primary goal for this class is for learners to become aware of marginalized groups and movements, what they represent, and understand how to best stand up for a cause they believe in. The secondary goal is for learners to use their creative skills to express what they learned about their chosen group or movement. 
I have studied diversity and inclusion as part of my doctorate coursework. I have undergone diversity training, as part of my employment with the school board. As a Girl Scout leader, I have had training on diversity and marginalized groups and taught scouts of all ages the subjects of diversity, inclusion, and solidarity a number of times since 2015. Also, as a professor at an HBCU (historically black colleges and universities), I have went through a number of trainings on how to work with and support people of marginalized groups. I have also taught students about diversity and marginalized groups in the workplace. I have expertise in all the marginalized groups mentioned.
At the conclusion of the first two classes, the teacher will provide instructions on small projects (e.g. write a paragraph, do a craft, find or create some type of art) the learners can do independently, before the next class session. Each learner will choose the type of project they want to do. The projects are to help the learners gain a deeper understanding of their chosen group or movement. Time will be given during the following class session for learners to share their projects with the classmates. If a learner is unable to complete a project for any reason, they can still attend the following session(s) and participate.

Learners will not need supplies for the live sessions. However, for the after class activities/projects, learners may need some craft supplies (i.e. paper, pencil, scissors, glue, elastic cord, beads, crayons, markers), depending on the option they choose to do.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
2 hours 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Since marginalized groups can be a sensitive topic and the learners will be doing some research on their chosen group or movement for homework, parents should help guide their learner's research, to avoid graphic or sensitive content that may be too disturbing for their learner. 

A sample list (not all-inclusive) of groups and movements that learners may chose to research is below:
-Black Lives Matter
-Women's sights
-Civil Rights Movements
-LGBTQ rights
-Disability rights
-Voters rights
-DREAMers movement
