Class Experience

Learning goals include engaging learners who are reluctant history fans to learn important historical events through a medium that interests them.  Further, the course seeks to provide learners a window into this important part of musical history and the show learners the way that history has influenced music and how music has influenced history.  
Each week, learners will have homework involving the listening and understanding of music and lyrics in political context as well as writing prompts to help engage in class discussion the following week.  There will be two short project, due on week three and week six.  
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
4 hours 35 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 2 - 4 hours per week outside of class.
These classes will involve an understanding and engaging on polarizing social  issues of the past 60 years.  However, the purpose of the class is to help learners understand the history and to analyze how music and politics influence each other, not to espouse any political opinion. No political opinions will be given by the teacher nor encouraged in the class. Further, the artists and music  are carefully curated to ensure that inappropriate language and themes, to include violence or mature adult themes, are kept out of the class curriculum. If a parent has a concern, please do not hesitate to contact me.
