Subject Area(s): Education

Credential(s): Master's Degree, Professional Licensure, Professional Development


The guiding, interdisciplinary question of this course is, Why can’t Black bodies breathe in America? The professor and students in this course will act as parallel learners who attempt to respond to this same question and, therefore, both will be "the student" in this unique and timely class that will use methods of history, aesthetics, and multimedia. The course will use as a case study the Derek Chauvin trial in the death of George Floyd to examine how the historical and contemporary landscape of American racial traumas are devised, composed, and constituted. This course addresses MA Subject Matter Knowledge goals for History and Social Science, English Language Arts, and Digital Literacy and Computer Science for grades 5-12.
