$ 250.00
15 available

This class is designed to provide students with an opportunity to discuss, understand, and explore political, economic and social issues. These issues may be either local, national, and/or international in scope. All issues will be discussed in a respectful, meaningful, and active way – utilizing both contemporary and historical sources as available. Throughout the term, students will stay up to date on current issues and trends. Because the subjects covered in this class are by their very nature “current and contemporary,” a variety of topics may be covered during the course, depending on the current news cycle.

Students will be expected to provide worthwhile topics of interest for class discussion. A variety of news sources and selected sources (newspapers, TV news, broadcast radio, podcasts, periodicals, social media/blogs, and webcasts) will be utilized for this class. Students will be challenged to defend their opinions on many different issues.

By the end of the course, students will have increased their ability to identify, analyze, and discuss current events issues with both peers and adults, and provide their own opinions on the subjects covered.

 

NOTE:

Registration deadline is December 15, 2020.

There must be a minimum of 5 students to run this class.
