Description

Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
My training as a secondary educator was based on student centered learning. Student centered learning puts the student/learner at the core of all activities so that the student’s growth will be highlighted through their experiences and interactions. Instead of having lecture heavy learning, the student is encouraged to have a hands on engagement with the material that they are learning.

My first experience creating a curriculum based off of this concept was during a Social Studies course that I created for 14-18 year old who performed poorly on their state exams. I created a curriculum centered around my students backgrounds and cultures as a means of exploring imperialism, colonialism and the global community. By allowing my students to bring their own experiences to the classroom allowed for them to see themselves and their experiences in academia, but it also allowed the to draw parallels with topics that they struggled to understand before.

In creating multiple ways for students to express and engage with their own personal interest, I believe that a student will be able to then transfer their likes/hobbies into an academic lens. 
Students will be required to bring a manga volume of their choice. All manga must be purchased or borrowed from a reputable source like a library.
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
