Part 2 of 2 - 16 week courses. It is highly recommended that you have IEW experience to take this course, if you do not have any experience, I suggest starting with Writing About History Through Literature with IEW or IEW Beginners for High School..

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.
Homework will be assigned each week and should be uploaded to the classroom before class. Each writing assignment includes a composition checklist, so what is expected is easily outlined.

We will deal with hard history topics such as Selma Voting Rights March, September 11th, Hurricane Katrina, Police Brutality and Racism in the court systems. We will learn to think critically about these events and after reading about them from carefully selected literature, we will use them as a jumping off point for essay writing of various types.
