Class Experience

Students will develop their understanding of the following:

-Canada's history of racial inequality
-Canada's geography and history as relevant to each week's lesson
-Government policies towards different groups of people within Canada
-The continuation of racism and systemic problems in Canada throughout history and into the present
-Writing in role and creative writing
Students will create their own journal entry/monologue in role, each week. They can choose which form of writing they would like to work on. The time spent on this assignment will differ from student to student, dependent on their own writing abilities and how in-depth they want to go with their written piece. As well, students will be encouraged to comment on one other student's written piece once posted, and respond to the discussion question posted each week. 
 2 files available upon enrollment
Students will require materials to write their journal entries/monologues. They can use pen and paper and upload a photograph of their writing (please make sure their writing is legible and clear in the photo), or they can use a program like Google Docs or Word to write. They can also write directly on the classroom page in the form of a post.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
As this course deals with racism and the mental, physical and emotional abuse of different groups of people within Canada, some subject matter may be more difficult for students to learn about. The residential school system in particular may feature subject matter your learner(s) might find upsetting. However, each topic will be treated with utmost respect and without any gratuitous detail. Students will learn the facts without unnecessary details they may find disturbing, in respect for their age group and learning level.
