Current Events: Here, There, and Everywhere: Explore the news in your area, the US, and the world, with focus on the interest of the attendees. The instructors will present various articles and context on the issues of the day, and encourage students to contribute as well. Then we’ll discuss the historical perspectives and their implications for the future. Students will be encouraged to consider potential stakeholders and perspectives on various isssues. Articles will sample widely to support this.

Our goals are to provide a safe space for gifted people to discuss current events; to support healthy discussion; to think critically about sources, language, and other causes of bias in reporting; and to build a community where we engage over challenging ideas with respect.


Teachers: Lisa Fontaine-Rainen and Josh Shaine
