Social Studies for Fourth Graders - Geography of the United States

Major Topics in African American Studies

Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(84)
Our class community centers the experiences of Africans by using the Africana framework to consider who and what Africans are to themselves and others mostly, but not exclusively, in the United States.

Class experience

The goal is to introduce or deepen exposure to major themes in African American Studies.
Learners will engage in weekly assignments and discuss ideas in class. 
Learners will also learn to research and discern information sources, how to apply a framework to knowledge work, and how to ask and answer critical questions. 
I am excited to bring this class to Outschool. In addition to my education- my undergraduate (History- Hampton University) and graduate (U.S. History- Southern Methodist University) and my classroom experience (teaching college lower-division level African-American History) I also bring a wealth of interdisciplinary study and experiences to this space. I look forward to sharing my passion for understanding African American experiences through history, literature, music, cinema, food, sport, and institutions.
