This is an upper-level course that I have set it up slightly different than the other HBD courses; it is an independent class (introductory teacher video with each lesson) where students will read the class notes and watch suggested videos.

There are ten lessons in this course for a ten week-long teaching.

  • Each lesson begins with an educational video from dr. heather

  • Reading, homework, and activities for additional 30+ minutes each week

  • Two 45-minute classes per week for ten weeks
