In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
1 hour 30 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This class may potentially go into topics that can be sensitive or controversial, given the nature of the subject. Students will be encouraged to think critically, listen respectfully, and respond with opinions backed by information. As the instructor, I will maintain a neutral balance during instruction. 

In the event a subject arises that dips into current politics and controversy, I encourage families to continue the discussion further among themselves and will share relevant information within the classroom for them to do so. 

Please note the websites used in this class. Enrollment in the class is considered permission to use these sources.
