Join us as students have the opportunity to explore enriching facets of diversity through self-exploration and exposure to the family heritage of peers. Using curriculum published by the Museum of Tolerance, students will complete a Family Tree Activity, a Cultural Research Activity, and a Family Quilt Activity. Students and families will be encouraged to participate in a field trip following the course to the Simon Wisenthal Museum of Tolerance in Los Angeles. These lessons are aligned to the California Content Standards for English-Language Arts and History-Social Science, grades 3-12.
Ms. Nona Hall-Sandoval has a Master's Degree in Psychology and currently working toward her Psy.D in Organizational Psychology. She has worked in social services for close to 15 years as a social worker, counselor, and non-profit director in a variety of multi-ethnic, diverse communities throughout California. She has taught Cultural Diversity, among other courses at the University of Phoenix for 3 years. Nona homeschools her 3 children and has a passion for empowering children to be the next generation of healthy leaders.
This is a drop off class, but there is a space where parents and siblings may read/do studies in another room. There is also a "playroom" for children under 4.
To sign up one child, RSVP as yourself, to sign up two children, RSVP +1, etc.
If you are not using Sky Mountain funds, please RSVP and bring payment to the first day of class. If you prefer, you can make an online payment to [masked].
