~This outside resource will be used each week in class. It does not require registration or a learner profile. Students will simply click a link, enter their first name (or nickname) and answer questions pertaining to this week's lesson. This resource may be used as a game, a challenge activity, a survey, or an assessment throughout the course. It is a fun platform and a useful tool for learners to experience as it is commonly used in classrooms today. 

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.
