Description

Class Experience

I hold both a Master's and a Bachelor's degree in anthropology. I am currently the Educational Coordinator of a Sunday school and an Instructor of Record at SUNY Binghamton. I teach about tolerance and respect for multicultural diversity through my jobs as a teacher and through my work as an anthropologist. My work focuses on issues of race, gender, and religion in politics. I also work with local LGBTQ campus groups and am an ally in the community, as well as a member of the LGBTQ community. I have taught these topics to students from elementary school through college. I conducted a thesis paper for my undergraduate on conflicts international students faced, which discussed issues of race, religion, language, cultural misunderstandings, and xenophobia. My Master's research focused on immigration issues, racism towards immigrants from Ethiopia in Israel, and conflict between religious sects. I also run a group that addresses issues of race, religion, politics, and teaches cultural awareness and diversity through education of traditions, history, and music from around the world.

The students need access to regular Youtube. Some of the videos may not play in the kid's version of Youtube.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class will cover issues of gender, sexuality, LGBTQ, stereotypes, transphobia, homophobia, and bullying. I will approach each topic through the lens of the class being a safe space. No hateful or actions that put others down will be tolerated. My classroom space is a safe space for students to learn and explore these topics.
