Twice a week, 16-week long effort to better understand racism in America and how racist ideas are hidden in our American institutions and planted in our minds. Anyone can be racist; no one has to be!

Description

Class Experience

Learners will understand the history and role of racism in America, how to avoid racist thinking and how to challenge racist ideas. Learners will learn language and framing ideas to help them talk about racism, how they feel about it and what they want to do about it. 
I HAD to study history at Hampton University (B.A) and U.S. History at Southern Methodist University (M.A. abt) because I found the complex topics and dynamic issues endlessly fascinating. Teaching high school and college history felt more like a prize than a job as I loved sharing our nation's struggles and stories with young learners and challenging them to think critically. Today I spend most of my time guiding teens to and through top colleges and universities. While I am no longer in the classroom I still find opportunities to guide people through the topics and timelines of America from time to time, and this is one of those times.

I am excited to be a part of the Outschool community and thankful to the learners for allowing me to share both of my passions at the same time. Is there anything better than teaching middle schoolers and high school students? I really don't think so! 

Learners will be tasked with a variety of homework during this course. Learners will need to prepare for class by reading provided texts, viewing videos and listening to podcasts.  This will ensure that they are equipped to participate fully in class. 

Learners will be given short writing assignments (such as one-paragraph essays) with every topic and will do one oral presentation to the class (3-5 minutes in length). 
Learners should arrive equipped to take notes.
All learners will receive informal feedback in real time (via private chat) and in messages. 

Learners have the option of receiving a formal assessment.
Written report/Letter Grade:
To receive a written report and letter grade each learner must request the Assessment Option before the end of the third class. Additionally, learners seeking an assessment must complete a short presentation (3-5 minutes) about an appropriate topic. Learners will be given additional guidance and guidelines on this presentation. 

1 hour 50 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Race relations in America cannot be understood without understanding the violence that often comes with enforcing racist control. Learners should be prepared to view troubling images- although these images are not displayed without advanced warning. Parents should also be prepared to continue discussing these sensitive topics at home.
