Class Experience

Students will learn to use music as a primary source for learning about historical events.  Students will also learn about the events that sparked the third wave feminist movement and how the music created at the time reflected the values of the movement's supporters.
I have been a NYC public school teacher for 7 years and have taught at both the middle school and high school levels.  I have a BA in History from Pennsylvania State University and a MA in Social Studies Education from Teachers College, Columbia University, as well as a New York State professional teaching certification.  I've completed the Level 3 certification from the Center For Racial Justice in Education and have led professional developments on discussing race in the classroom through the New York City Mastery Collaborative.  I have a strong passion for music and have taught multiple music history classes, including History of the Blues, Rock n' Roll & Teenage Rebellion, and Hip-Hop History.
No homework will be assigned, but students are encouraged to share their reflections with their families.

1 hour 10 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The Bikini Kill song contains moderate use of profanity.  While not excessive, parents/guardians should note that this class is best suited for mature students.  I have chosen to include this song due to the value I think it holds as a primary source for learning about the ideals of the movement.
