About the Event

With everything going on in the world right now, it is important learners understand what racism is all about and the role Black Lives Matter has in the current climate. 

Day 1:  An interactive discussion with a Powerpoint presentation will define racism and introduce Black Lives Matter. The learners will be asked if they know of any friends or family who has experienced racism.  

Day 2: An interactive discussion with a Powerpoint presentation will present 5 of the 13 Guiding Principles of Blacks Lives Matter.  The principles to be discussed are: a.  Restorative Justice b.  Empathy c.  Loving Engagement d.  Diversity e.  Unapologetically Black The learners will be asked how they can show these principals or if they have any friends or family who have shown these principals.  The learners are not required to represent these principals.  It is optional.  

Day 3:  An interactive discussion with a Powerpoint presentation will highlight the cases of Trayvon Martin and George Floyd. The learners will then present their research on other injustices and show the Black Lives Matter Protest signs they created for homework. This homework is optional.  Learners will only research and/or create signs if they choose to do so.  We will also discuss other ways to support the Black Lives Matter movement if interested.

Meet the Teacher - Karen Evans

Hi!  I am Karen Evans.  I am excited to help you learn! Teaching has always been my first love and now I am enjoying it during this chapter in my life. I am a semi-retired Director of Human Resources. That career has given me the opportunity to teach classes on Leadership, Careers, Social Injustice and Equal Opportunity.

I value education and have a Masters Degree in Human Resources and Management and am a adjunct faculty member teaching Human Resource and Management courses at Park University.   My career in Human Resources also gave me the opportunity to resolve conflicts as well as deal with other employee relations issues, including racial, sex and gender discrimination in the workplace.  

In addition,  I am a substitute teacher for a local school district teaching K-8th grades. I want to help your child with Writing, Reading Comprehension, Spelling and Grammar at this level.  I have an easy-going, interactive teaching style that is fun!  In the classroom at elementary schools, I carry a treasure box with prizes for star students and we also take time out for dance parties!  I Floss, Orange Justice, Hype and do it all with them.  They absolutely love it!  I would love to transfer knowledge to your child.
