Yearbook (cont’d) (Sieglinde)

In this twice weekly, yearlong Yearbook Class, students are co-editing, designing, and creating the 23-24 PSCS Yearbook. The  theme this year is Punk! which was decided by community process. We’re studying and learning the the intersectional history of punk, both as an aesthetic, as a sound, and as a movement—and applying it to a really cool archive of the year.

Our co-editors have already worked out the layout, timeline, and have gotten us started in Canva (easy to share, easy to organize, on the cheap). We hope to add 2-3 more folks interested in finalizing layout, writing copy, taking and organizing pictures, and creating pages/spreads in ways that capture this amazing community of humans.

The final result will be printed and shared with the community in June.

About the instructor: 20 years of graphic design, printing, and photography experience. Many years of experience with yearbook timelines, planning and layout (8th grade yearbook co-editor; High school yearbook staff).

MS Sexual Health (Year-long) (Amy)

Note: This class is open to middle school students only.

Last term we covered communication, consent, and what it means to have healthy vs. unhealthy relationships.  This term will be more focused on bodies, gender, and sexual orientation.

We will continue to learn through reading, videos, and conversation!

AP African American Studies HS (cont) (Sam)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

This course will provide an overview of the history of Africans and their descendants across the globe, including but not limited to African civilizations prior to European colonialism, encounters between Africa and Europe, movements of Africans to the Americas and elsewhere, and the development of Black communities in and outside Africa. Learners will explore the complex interplay among the political, economic, and cultural forces that shape our understanding of the historic achievements and struggles of African-descended people in the United States and their relation to others around the world. In addition to the curricular materials, students can select a topic for further exploration and in-depth research.  A variety of texts and community resources will be used to provide applicable and real-world examples related to the content.

HS Sexual Health (Year-long) (Amy)

Note: This class is open to high school students only.

Last term we did some deep dives into communication, consent, red-flags and green-flags in relationships, and how the media influences our beliefs about relationships.

This term we will begin to focus more heavily on gender, sexual orientation, and what sex means to us.
