In this semester-long history course, students will take a full-length Ethnic Studies class geared towards high schoolers (9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th graders). This is part 1 of the course (the first 8 weeks). Part 2 will be the second 8 weeks. Not familiar with what "Ethnic Studies" means? It emerged in the political climate of the 1960's and UC Berkeley defines it as "the critical and interdisciplinary study of race, ethnicity, and indigeneity with a focus on the experiences and...
Students will learn part 1 of an introductory history of the history of people of color in the United States. Students will also learn an alternative history and narrative of the history of the United States.
I am a certified Advanced Placement Social Studies/History Teacher at a Title I High School in the Bay Area in California. I am a licensed K-12 educator. I also teach for an organization that centers Black history and black people (Reconstruction US). In addition to teaching high school currently and K-12 students at Reconstruction, I taught this same course last year at a middle school in Richmond, CA. This class covers historically marginalized groups - I received my undergraduate degree in History, specializing in the history of people of color. I also received my Master's in Education from Harvard University, where I concentrated on social justice education as well as anti-racist pedagogy. I am a trained race and racism facilitator as well.
No homework assigned, as long as your student engages in twice weekly classes.
Paper and pencil if you like to take hand written notes during class sessions or want to keep a notebook of the semester's content. No textbook is necessary.
Informal assessments and written feedback from the teacher.
1 hour 40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class will address the histories of historically marginalized groups and topics like slavery, institutional racism, and oppression will come up. Along with each week's live class sessions, I will include resources each week that help students understand those larger themes of racism and oppression. I will also include weekly videos on how to address these topics at home, resources to help parents and families, and resources for students when completing the readings.
