Class Experience

After successful completion of the course students should be able to:

• Engage in critical thinking to evaluate culturally based assumptions that underlie the modern concepts of race and racism.
• Communicate effectively about the defining moments in the development of race-based ideas as well as anti-racist strategizing.
• Learn ways to be an ally and stand in solidarity with the Black community who are impacted by racism 
I have planned and taught community forums and workshops that discussed racism, discrimination and other social issues topics. I have taught middle school students the importance of being an agent of change by analyzing a social issue of their choice and creating a community event that addressed the issue. Ultimately, my goal is for my workshop to allow students to know that they have power and they can choose to use their power to empower others.

I understand that this is a very sensitive topic, therefore I promote a safe and supportive environment where students feel comfortable engaging in group activities
Students will have take home assessments and diversity book review assignments.
Construction Paper (Standard printing paper is also acceptable) Journal Pencil/Pen Scissors Markers/Color Pencils Notecards
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Students will also be provided with constructive feedback based on their performance assessment (students will have the opportunity to solve a problem or complete a project demonstrating their knowledge and skills, on the topic. A series of oral and written assessments will be made during the course.
1 hour 5 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
I will remove any graphic content or words relevant to the Black Lives Matter campaign, for example; graphic Black Live Matter protest photos. This is due to the age range and the delicate nature of this subject matter. 
We will refer to the history of the civil rights movement and Black Lives Matter movement throughout the duration of the course.
