Learning Goals 1) Students will be able to define the term "protest." 2) Students will be able to compare and contrast different protests from American History (Black Lives Matter, March of Washington, anti-Vietnam war, Solidarity Day march, Million Man March, and Women's March). 3) Students will be able to analyze different protests to determine the reason for the protest. 4) Students will be able to explore their own opinions to determine which side of an argument they stand on (hypothetical argument over returning to in-person schooling).
Bachelor's degree in Political Science, expertise in human and civil rights from fellowships and independent research and study.
For this course, there is no required homework.
Paper Pencil Colored pencils or markers (optional) Poster size paper (optional)
Every learner will be assessed in two major ways, informal and formal assessments. The informal assessment will consist of students rating their understanding and answering questions asked by the instructor. The formal assessment will consist of a 3-5 question exit ticket that will be completed at the completion of our class.
45 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
Since we are discussing the topic of "protests," some of the materials will be politically sensitive, including images and videos of various protests and the signs that voiced the protestor's opinions of injustice. All information will be provided in a secular, neutral, and informative manner.
