In this class, we will look at infamous crimes from a critical thinking point of view. We will learn about what happened and explore and discuss associated theories and events. We will focus on the "good guys"- men and women- doing the work behind the scenes. These are our everyday heroes, the names and faces not often heard or seen. Many cases will involve murders and missing people. Class will begin with a discussion on what it means to be respectful- to each other and to the victims....
This class is taught in English.

Anthropology is the objective study of cultures and how societies live(d) and interact(ed). I also have a minor in anthropology focusing on Ancient civilizations (Mesopotamia, Egypt, Greece, and Rome) as well as more recent civilizations including the Mayans, Aztecs, and other Native American societies. I am certified to teach US grades 7-12 English Language Arts and have a Master's degree in Professional Education.

Parental guidance is suggested as we will be discussing crime, murder, and death. Though we approach topics from a straight forward and factual perspective, some learners may find certain topics emotional. If this happens, feelings will be validated and discussed in an age/developmentally appropriate way. We will interpret the information discussed, asked questions to understand why we feel the way we do and to understand others may feel differently. That does not mean one person's feelings are not valid. This helps to teach compassion, a very important tool for children and adults. Context and perspective will be provided as well, as it is important to understand the circumstance of the situation presented and to help us look for positives. This class is a safe space for discussion.
