Class experience

US Grade 9 - 12
Moving through Units 7–9 of the IEW methods, students will take notes, summarize narrative stories, write from pictures, put together a mini research report, and compose creative essays.
I am a registered IEW instructor and have been using IEW for many years.  I have a Master's Degree in Education.  Additionally, I have completed the Anti-Racism I course through University of Colorado Boulder to better prepare me to discuss sensitive racial topics that have occurred throughout history.  I continue to educate myself on these topics from those from the communities which are most greatly affected.  I am also working through Anti-Racism II from University of Colorado Boulder and Black History, Black Freedom and Black Love from MasterClass.
