Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
My goal is to teach Learners about the practical, historical, personal and technical aspects of the U.S. Constitution. 
Over time, Learners will become both comfortable and knowledgeable which will provide a solid foundation for civic engagement. 
I HAD to study history at Hampton University (B.A) and U.S. History at Southern Methodist University (M.A. abt) because I found the complex topics and dynamic issues endlessly fascinating. My education allowed me to study questions of civics and government extensively, topics that should ALWAYS figure prominently when understanding The United States. Teaching high school and college history felt more like a prize than a job as I loved sharing our nation's struggles and stories with young learners and challenging them to think critically. I have decades of experience educating young people and adults issues surrounding civic engagement. While I am no longer in the classroom I still find opportunities to guide people through the topics and timelines of America from time to time, and this is one of those times. Teaching this topic to young people gives me hope and brings me so much happiness- our children are amazing!
Individual homework will be assigned periodically. 
Learners will be provided with a variety of materials to support our topics every week- to include news articles, short audio recordings and videos. Learners should allow an hour per week to engage in these materials. 
All materials will be provided as needed in the class notes. Learners should have easy access to the class page and the ability to access the class message board and Learner email.
55 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
>>This class uses primary and secondary sources that to follow civic events and opinions. 
Occasionally, we may find harsh language (such as a swear word or slur) in the documents. Parents may choose to preview documents an articles as they are intended for general, not juvenile, audiences. <<

Rules of Engagement:
Learners are required to attend with an open camera.
Learners are encouraged to share their opinions, even unpopular ones, but must be respectful of the opinions of other.
We will often agree to disagree, which is ok. Civil discourse is the goal.
We will use The U.S. Constitution in every meeting- Learners are encouraged to have a printed copy.
Learners are also encouraged to have a printed copy of their State Constitution (if Learner resides in a particular state).
