Sankofa Word!

Sankofa is a Ghanaian proverb and symbol. It translates: To move forward, we must deal with the past. It is a symbol of healing in order to move forward. Our 4 major departments begin with Sankofa to indicate the healing nature built into the curriculum and instructional design as well as into the teacher preparation and execution.

Communication is critical for success. Our language arts program encompasses both written and spoken word master. It seeks to prepare students to write and speak well in a number of venues using a variety of styles designed to get their message through the inherent chatter of modern and personal interference. Similarly, this is an electronic age and we prepare student to use the various and changing mediums to express themselves, to acquire the information and services they need and to persuade others to action.

Our program is an international one, so we encourage the students to seek proficiency in various languages and cultures. Students will achieve mastery which will allow them to exceed state and other national standards.

Following Araminta (Harriet Tubman):

A study of US History 1820-1913 through the eyes of revolutionary Araminta (Harriet Tubman). We visit her grandparents during the middle passage 1750s. Aramint’as dreams and Vincent Harding’s There Is A River takes us there. We visit those who inspired her like Nat Turner. We see those she inspired like France Ellen Watkins Harper, Sojourner Truth, etc. We examine her affect on the politics of the day, her collaboration with John Brown. A major section focuses on the Civil War and her role as soldier, general, spy, business woman, and doctor. Araminta’s struggles and WEB Dubois’ Black Reconstruction gives us a grand picture of the conflict –before, during and after. Finally, we look at the days and years after physical captivity of Afrikans was abolished and into the turn of the century.
