Description

Class Experience

Upon completion of the course, the students will:
• Gain an appreciation of the richness, diversity, and contributions of African American culture to national and international life and the world.
• Reaffirm the fact that civilization in the United States is not the result of the work and energy of one people, but is the result of the contributions of African Americans and many other groups.
• Develop knowledge of important people, events, and ideas that have played a key role in shaping the history and culture of African Americans, and the history and culture of the United States.
There are connecting threads present throughout the course. These threads are reflective of major aspects of, and influences on African American life. Some of the major themes to be developed throughout the course will include the:
• Enduring presence of Africanisms – those patterns of life which emanated from Africa – and their impact on African American life in the United States.
• Impact of racism and colonialism – individual and institutional – on Africans and African Americans.
• Origins and development of slavery and its negative impact on Africa and the United States..
• Development of African American nationalism as a result of the segregated nature of American society.
• Participation of African Americans in each of the nation’s wars and conflicts.
This may be a sensitive topic to families who are used to the Eurocentric history perspective. 
I am certified in the following:
School Counseling K-12
Special Education K-12
Elementary Education K-6
and was required to take classes on cultural competence, diversity, inclusion, and African American History while receiving my Master's so that I could teach students of marginalized groups.

I am a Florida certified guidance counselor with a Master's in School Counseling. My graduate degree required classes on issues of cultural inclusion, race, and diversity. I have also taught anti-racism during my time as a school counselor in public schools. 
Specifically, I had to take:
Counseling Theories and Applications
Cultural Diversity and Advocacy
Mental Health in Schools
Counseling Children and Adolescents		

Teacher Expertise:
During undergrad and graduate school, I took the following courses which make me qualified to teach this subject. I  have a degree connected to the topic they are teaching or additional training/education related to the topic.

During my college courses and afterward I have also had to study the following books

I am also certified in Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion from the University of Florida. 


I am also an activist who assists with protesting against racial injustices, I have taught this curriculum with my students in the past, and have experienced racism in my own life. 

As well as learned all the content in the African Studies Institute from the University of Florida found here https://africa.ufl.edu/outreach/teachers-institute/ (This is a course for teachers offered in the Summer in Florida each year and speaks highly of African Empires)

Please purchase and begin reading the book before class. You can find this book pretty much anywhere but here is a link for your convenience. 
Stamped (For Kids): Racism, Antiracism, and You by Sonja Cherry-Paul (Adapter), Jason Reynolds  (Author), Ibram X. Kendi (Author), Rachelle Baker (Illustrator)
https://www.amazon.com/Stamped-Kids-Racism-Antiracism-You/dp/0316167584 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No assessment will be given
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
During class, we will establish or review ground rules for the respectful discussion of political dialogue in class. We emphasize that the goal of the work in this lesson is to increase understanding and that hateful or derogatory speech of any sort is not acceptable. We remind students that a piece of art does not owe readers consideration of every perspective; its responsibility is to present its perspective. Readers, however, can and should bring multiple perspectives to interpreting the work as long as their perspectives are grounded in facts and are presented respectfully. Violent or graphic images when discussing enslavement, politically sensitive topics in regards to marginalized groups may come up during the discussion. Non-Eurocentric views may be contrary to what has been taught previously. Please be advised.
