Average rating:4.7Number of reviews:(178)
In this class we will examine the life and teachings of John Lewis through his words, writing and historic footage. We will discuss core values of equality, forgiveness and Lewis’ definition of “good trouble”

Class experience

Students will understand the historic importance of John Lewis' life.
In addition to my teaching experience I served on two racial reconciliation/ equity boards for nonprofit organizations. I have also written on issues of racial equity. More importantly, as an African American mom I have worked hard to ensure my children understand the contributions of those who like Lewis understood  sometimes we have to get into "good trouble" to ensure change occurs. 
Additionally my professional writing/ teaching bio is below: Cheryl R. Carter is a busy homeschooling mother, author, speaker and a college professor with a passion to help others write well. She teaches English and Creative Writing classes and has written broadly on  a variety of subjects. She is the author of several books including Organize Your Life,  Essential Writing Skills for the College Bound Student, Inspire the Writer in Your Child and Organize Your AD/HD Child.  In addition to writing fiction and poetry in her spare time, she blogs regularly on issues of clarity in written communication and the family.  She has a BA in English Literature and a MFA in Creative Writing  and has done graduate study in Special Education. She has a Certificate in College Admission from Columbia University. She has also written literary guides and won academic awards for her writing. Her books have been translated into Hebrew, German, Czech  and Polish are selling well internationally. Carter's curriculum and writing classes focus on equipping students with the vital skills for lifetime communication success. Her curriculum and classes are marked by a sense of depth yet simplicity that nurture a love of writing in students. She has also worked in the area of racial equity with nonprofit groups and is skilled in conflict resolution. Carter enjoys teaching almost as much as she enjoys learning. Her enthusiasm is contagious; she enjoys inspiring her students to think, learn and grow!
