Class Experience

By the courses end, students will be junior pop culture and history archivists, having learned how to identify obscure points of history and map the historical presence and contemporary contributions of African Americans.
Homework assignments will be due weekly. They will take the form of a writing assignment or creative expression project.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
YouTube: A curated YouTube playlist will be shared with students. Videos are pre-screened and used to further course knowledge.

Nearpod: Nearpod is an online tool that will be utilized in this course to make our flexible learning more collaborative and engaging!
