As your child’s SUNY African Diaspora Teacher, I would first like to extend to you my warmest regards during this scary, complicated time. Please know that my goal is to give your children the opportunity to continue to be challenged and grow academically while maintaining some sense of normalcy as it relates to their course work. Hence, students are currently working on a project that allows them flexibiliity in terms of how they demonstrate their understanding about specific concepts related to the African Diaspora as well as what they choose to demonstrate. This project, while rigorous, gives students a rich, independent learning experience. I will hold students' hand through the process by closely monitoring their progress and providing timely and effective feedback, suggestions, and corrections when and where necessary.
