Current Events (ages 13+) Connect 2018
From 12:00 pm to 1:50 pm |
Have you ever wanted people to hear your opinion? Whether it is spoken or written, your opinion matters! In this class, we will review what is happening in the world through discussion of ten newsworthy events chosen by the students each week. We will learn about media literacy and the skills of analysis and debate. We will work on improving writing, presentation, discussion, debate and persuasion skills, utilizing newsworthy events. Out of class work is expected, though students can have any skill level when they begin.
The independent study ticket is for independent work or Makerspace time.
