Join us as we journey through Season 1 of Tyler Perry’s House of Payne. Each week we will discuss a new episode of the social issue highlighted, from bullying to drug addiction to child predators. The show has a PG rating but mature topics.
Disclaimer: This is a primarily Black American cast. As such, other cultures and ethnicities are more likely to avoid the show, especially White Americans. I believe it would be beneficial to have a diverse group of learners in this class and invite all cultures and ethnicities to participate.
Comedy and drama are excellent vehicles to promote discussion of deeper issues. Potential topic discussions are listed in the class descriptions.
Classes will meet live online on Wednesdays from 3-4 PM, EST, starting 9/20/22.
What Will You Learn?
- Through viewing the House of Payne family situations, students will have the opportunity to examine their own lives, learn about the wider world, and learn about respecting differences. Students will have an opportunity to discuss mature topics in a safe, guided environment.
