Class Experience

Students will see themselves in these stories and will be able to explore their own identities. This course will bring visibility to cultures that may be different than their own. They will build community, unity, and inclusivity. Reading diverse books will create an opening for discussions about what's happening in our current events as well as past events. We will also take notice that even with different backgrounds, kids are kids, and they will be able to find similarities.
I have taught diversity to many people, not just kids, throughout my life. I have taught and continue to teach the compassion of diversity to kids daily. I have been teaching on Outschool since June 2020. In many of my classes we have covered the topics of women's rights, race, gender, ethnic background, LGBTQIA+, and much more that falls under the diversity umbrella. My husband and I have two African American adopted children that have been with us since birth (age 13 and 15 now). My nephew is transgender, as well as being diabetic.
The only homework for this class will be the reading of the book we will be discussing for the week.
Students will need to have a physical or digital copy of the books to participate in the class discussions. Most of these books should be attainable through your local library. Please plan ahead when joining this club. We do not read the books in class.
45 minutes per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
The books we will be reading in the class will be in the age range of 12-16 years old (according to Amazon). Some of the books (very few) have violence, some profanity, and some deal with race. These books are noted in the course description. We will discuss all diverse experiences during this class, including (but not limited to) LGBTQIA+, Native, people of color, gender diversity, people with disabilities, and ethnic, cultural, and religious minorities. These discussions could include racism, sexism, and discrimination. These topics will be handled in an age-appropriate manner. All my classrooms are safe, respectful, and supportive places for all students.

Looking back on my early years of learning, what stands out most in my memories are the subjects I found joy in, the teachers who made learning a delightful experience, and the freedom to explore topics that fascinated me. These are the very...
