Description

Class Experience

Learners will expand their understanding of LGBT+ identity, struggle, and pride and cast a critical eye on how society markets and represents these communities. 
I have experience running and operating a Gay-Straight Alliance as the vice president at a high school and college level as well as taking continuing education in women's rights, LGBT+ history, violence and oppression, gender and sexuality in media, critical communication and crucial conversations as well as de-escalation of conflict. I am also well-versed in talking about big issues, as I have for other classes on this site for the past year.  
Besides watching the videos each week, there will be no additional homework. If it is wanted, I can make a weekly assignment for a journal entry/reflection type of assignment. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The topics for this class will be toned down a bit for ages 8-12, but if parents have any questions, they can message. We will be discussing the idea of LGBT+ identities and what they mean in a general fashion, hate crimes and discrimination (limiting the more intense details), the HIV/AIDS epidemic (with heavy emphasis that things have moved a long way since then and people diagnosed are most of the time doing great now), and marketing, advertisements, and media both pointed in a good and negative direction representing the LGBT+ community.
