Student Learning Outcomes
As an instructor I work with students through a participatory framework. Each student comes with skills, knowledge and experiences that are valid to any material worthy to be taught. I believe this wholeheartedly. In this class you will be asked to examine issues of race, class, ability citizenship, sexuality and other forms of difference through various philosophical and political spectrums. My goal is to unveil the truths hidden by oppression and revise ill informed stigma and stereotypes in our hearts and minds.
