Description

Class Experience

Students will improve their critical thinking skills and be able to respond to journaling prompts.
I am a student of African history, social values, and culture. I've taught related racial and cultural topics, including the African Holocaust of Enslavement, to children as young as 7, and use my background knowledge and personal experiences as an African descendant to navigate these spaces with sensitivity and care. It is my belief that students of any age can learn these issues, as long as they are presented in an age-appropriate manner. With my background in European and African psychology, I understand the wellbeing aspect of these discussions and take the necessary precautions to ensure that students feel safe, heard, and respected. 
Paper and pencil/something to write with for each session
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
  • Google Slides
No formal assessment provided
30 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The prompts given will be from historical African/Black figures, authors, etc. With this format, there may be topics that arise that may challenge preconceived notions about history, and/or politics. This class is not meant to be an in-depth discussion of history given the limited time frame, but the prompts will provide students with the opportunity to think deeper on the subject matter, research as they find necessary, and ultimately be able to draw their own conclusions on these issues. Nonetheless, if parents have concerns please do not hesitate to reach out.
We will refer to sayings, quotes, lyrics, and proverbs created by African/Black people across space and time. The prompts will be sent to students after each session in case the student would like to explore deeper.
