CBL 200 - Peer Mentor Training for Community-Based Learning

Credits: 1 This course will prepare students to lead discussion sections in CBL 100: “Introduction to Community Based Learning: Unheard Voices of Black Lexington.” In twelve one-hour sessions and engagement with community partners on the topic of local Black experiences, students will develop the following skills essential to community-based and antiracist work: open-mindedness, humility, appreciation of community-cultural wealth, intellectual curiosity, empathy, and commitment. They will learn how to foster an anti-racist classroom environment, facilitate discussions on race, guide students in critical reflection, and comment on student reflection papers. They will co-frame and lay the groundwork for projects to be done in CBL 100 by interacting directly with community-partners during the fall term. Once completed, this course will allow students to serve as peer mentors in CBL 100 during the following winter term. Peer Mentors will help students in CBL 100 succeed in guided discussion groups and their weekly reflection essays.  Experiential Learning (EXP): Y Goluboff.
