Class Experience

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.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
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.
