Course Cost: $300 + $30 Registration Fee Course Duration: 15 weeks Age: 12-18 Course Description: The Current Events and Critical Issues class will explore events of interest currently happening in our community, nation, and world. Through in-class activities and homework assignments, we’ll learn the background information needed to knowledgeably discuss various sides of important topics. All questions, as well as opposing points of view, will be encouraged and honored; we will practice respectful disagreement and will learn to look for points on which we can build consensus. Topics will be guided by students’ interests but may include issues such as climate change, abortion, changing gender norms, gun rights, and food and housing insecurity. Students will be asked to keep up with news events and to contribute weekly to an online discussion board.
