    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    Being a black student in Chicago Public Schools is already hard considering the fact that schools in predominantly black neighborhoods get less than others and our resources aren't up to date. Ms.Davis teaches students more than they know about themselves and some of these things are so hard to believe unfortunately because we, black students, have been closed off to this information for approximately 16-17 years. It's a really eye opening class and it kept me engaged.

    Course highlights:

    I learned that race as we know it today is a myth considering the fact that there's only one race (human). It really made me think critically and raised good conversation in class.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    Read everything she gives you and annotate it so you won't have a hard time writing the essay at the end of the unit.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would completely recommend that everyone who attends a school that offers African American Studies take this corse. Ms.Davis (my teacher) open my eyes and now Im #WOKE

    Course highlights:

    I learned the true history of the African-American, where slavery started, who started it, the real revolutionaries, and what you can be in the future. Basically it's not that basic stuff that the white teachers teach you it really goes in.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    KEEP AN OPPEN MIND. DON'T BECOME A COON.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I recommend this class because it opens up a new understanding to the way you think of our history. It addresses questions, concerns, and desires by diving into various studies. This course teaches you early note taking skills for college. It challenges you to take good notes, and keep up with them for future use. It also teaches you how to write well valued essays that you may also address again in college. Overall, this course is well rounded, college preparatory and very challenging, yet enthusiastic.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course was final essays and projects graded at the end of each quarter and/or semester. Something very important that I learned is, there is always more to history than a person may know. Someone who is well experienced and educated in that subject may not know everything there is to know, but that is okay because you study and you learn. Your'e never incapable of learning new things and finding new answers. Learning doesn't stop at a diploma or degree. The second most important thing that I have learned is more people are aware when you share your knowledge. There's no point of spending so much time studying something, and having a strong passion for it if you won't share it with the next person. Lastly, I learned that you will never make a change if you don't make an effort. You have to stand for what you believe in, whether it is small or big. One voice is better than none at all and you never know who you may impact just by sharing your passion for whatever it is that you may feel strongly about.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    TAKE GOOD NOTES AND KEEP ALL DOCUMENTS. Any document that you may receive should always be kept in a neat folder or binder. Also, take really good insightful notes that you can go back and ready later on that week, month, or year. Finally, pay attention and don't be afraid to stay after class or come early to ask questions and get extra help, it's worth it.
