While history is filled with fascinating stories, there are events that can be upsetting for some learners. Teacher Jamie has years of classroom experience navigating these difficult subjects with compassion and objectivity. Learners can expect to share their own perspectives in a respectful, safe environment that is inclusive of all learners, regardless of their socio-economic status, race, ethnicity, sexuality and gender identity. Learners that engage in abusive or harmful behavior directed at other learners will immediately be removed from the discussion.
