Class Experience

I am a human rights lawyer and homeschooling mom. I have advanced legal education and training in international refugee and asylum law and  worked for the United Nations for over a decade in various human rights contexts. I now teach international law at the university level while homeschooling my own children and teaching various big concepts in bite sizes on Outschool. 
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
This class will necessarily touch on some big and scary concepts. We will delve into the various reasons why people may be forced to leave their homes and become immigrants. We will touch on issues involving the dangers of travel and migration, the conditions in refugee camps and we will consider individual stories of immigrant families and their plight. Video material may feel big and scary at times (though all efforts are made to avoid it becoming too graphic, it is possible that video footage could include sick, wounded etc). If your child is particularly sensitive or you do not feel that these materials would be age or maturity level appropriate, parents should consider this before signing their learners up for this class.
