After each class, students will receive an action item to continue their learning outside of class. Examples of action items include "interview an adult about their role in their community" or "research the history of how your town came to be." Students may post responses in the classroom or message them privately to the instructor.
I recommend having a printer available, but it is not required. No textbooks or specific supplies required.
40 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
While discussions about culture and history can pose the possibility of discussions on discrimination and racism, you can be assured that your instructor is prepared and experienced in discussing these topics. While racism is real and present, it is also a true part of our world's history. It will be discussed in a way that reflects the realities of our world's history and the need for kindness and acceptance of people of all backgrounds. Any expression of direct discrimination or unkindness inside the classroom will be addressed and followed up after class. Students may be removed or addressed formally through Outschool Safety & Support.
