Class Experience

Students will learn about a variety of African subjects. They will learn how to cite sources, write an essay, write a research paper, and how to look for evidence to support their claims
I am well versed in African history, literature, and psychology texts. I am an African descendant and spend my free time researching about African people. I've taught a variety of African history, writing, reading and science classes to students as young as 5 years old, and understand that some topics may be sensitive and should be navigated with care and expertise. I seek to provide students with factual evidence of African achievements in the hopes that they learn more about themselves and others all over the world. It is my goal that students learn more about African culture and develop ways to share this with others
Students will need to do some research and writing outside of class and complete weekly assignments if they want to stay on track
Paper and pencil will be required for every class
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
informal feedback
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be reading from a variety of African/Black authors and topics. Some topics may be sensitive regarding the history of African people. Instructor will provide ample support for more difficult topics and take care to provide students with resources to continue their learning and processing outside of class time. Instructor understands that some topics may bring up personal experiences for students and will respect student decisions not to share during these times. Parents will need to approve of sources that students find on their own and approve of any materials they use in research
Students will be finding their own sources to complete each research topic
