Class Experience

The goal of this class is to teach about people and organizations that worked together towards gaining equal rights for U.S. citizens.
Students will be able to explore a moment in American History
The hope is for students to be able to apply what they learned towards their understanding of the people and culture in the United States today.
Please note that I am a certified K-12 Theater Teacher with a Masters in Educational Theatre in Colleges and Communities from New York University. My background and education allows me to use theater in order to teach academic and social topics in an engaging way. I have also performed a similar play for Middle and High school assemblies across New York and New Jersey.
55 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
This class includes actual images from the Civil Rights movements, some of which are graphic and violent in nature.
