In this course, students will NOT read the typical canon of stories told from a white, male, cisgender, heterosexual, able-bodied perspective. Instead, students will read the voices that are lacking in the typical school canon.

Description

Class Experience

Besides over fifteen years of teaching experience, I have specialized training and professional development in inclusivity and sensitivity in teaching.  My background is in Montessori education, and peace education is a major tenet of the Montessori philosophy.  My Montessori 6-9 certification, Montessori 12-18 certification, and Montessori Education Master's all included extensive work in peace education, conflict resolution, and inclusivity training. In addition to my training, I will utilize This Book is Anti Racist as a class resource.  

I am always available to help you with conversations that may arise at home as well.
Learners will need copies of The God of Small Things by Arundhati Roy, The Absolutely True Diary of a Part-Time Indian by Sherman Alexie, Persepolis: The Story of a Childhood by Marjane Satrapi, and With The Fire On High by Elizabeth Acevedo.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
No live meetings, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
Please look at reviews and other information about each book, and be sure that you are comfortable with your learner reading these titles.  There is mature language and situations in some of these titles, but they are important reads, and I believe your learner will grow and expand by reading them. Specifically, there is strong language, sexual situations, abuse, and mental illness.

You can support your student with these topics by talking to them as they read, and helping them process anything that is troubling them.  You can also always reach out to me.  Please read the Teacher Expertise section to see how I am qualified and prepared to deal with working through these books with your student and their peers.  In addition to my training, I will utilize This Book is Anti Racist as a class resource.
