Parental assistance depending on developmental needs.
Students will explore the challenges, resolve, and contributions of
African Americans. They will leave the course with a firm
understanding that African American history is indeed American history.
Students will be given at least two choices weekly in their at-home activities.
This text, although gentle, is an honest look at history and therefore will include some violence, discrimination, and hard discussions as it relates to African-Americans. I will soften language when appropriate given the young age of the students.
A copy of the book Heart And Soul, The Story of America and African Americans by Kadir Nelson.
Live sessions will be best experienced with a camera and microphone. Parents will need a Zoom account (free).
