    Bread and Circuses: Hunger Games, Oppression, and Resistance

    Thursdays, 2:15 pm Eastern; starts January 28th.

    Children vs. children sounds absolutely horrific – and it is, it must be, because that kind of horror is a tool to create the oppressive atmosphere of a controlling authoritarian government.  At the same time it provides the kind of dramatic mind-consuming entertainment the privileged in such a nation must experience to keep them placated.

    Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series explores oppression and the inevitable resistance that rises out of such oppression..  The parallels to historical examples, particularly the Roman Empire, and much of the modern world, abound. In this course we’ll explore those parallels, working towards understanding effective resistance, and examining some of the problems that arise in revolution.  We’ll discuss Roman gladiators and reality television as different aspects of the same circus.

     

    We’ll also delve into the developments that might lead from our current world to the world of Hunger Games, scientifically, environmentally, economically, and otherwise.  We’ll explore psychology, sociology, technology, biology, and architecture all through the lens of the books.

     

    In this first course of the series, we will focus most on the tools of oppression used by authoritarian regimes as displayed in Hunger Games.  

     

    Each week, we will compare some aspect of our reading to a particular historical or current event.

    Meets: Fridays 10:00am - 11:00pm,  Eastern Time

    $325; GHF, SENG, MAGE, and NHAGE Members pay $310!

    *** We will take a two week break -- no meetings 4/9 or 4/16 ***

    We accept charter school funds

    DESCRIPTION

    We will be using the book Thinking Physics, but I recommend that students NOT purchase the book before taking the course. This is an introduction to conceptual physics which does not require much math and absolutely does not require calculus. Because one of the main goals is to develop accurate physics intuition, our discussions of the problems will acknowledge and discuss common errors of thinking while we develop the conceptual tools necessary for later application of mathematical tools to solving physics problems. No homework though your student may beg to have the book after they have completed the course!

    Find Thinking Physics at your library, your favorite bookseller, or here.

    SYLLABUS

    Problem based discussion course, we will not discuss every problem in the book, but we will discuss a sampling from all topic areas.

    Topics:
    Kinematics
    Newton's Laws of Motion

    Einstein Adds a New Dimension is the third of three works in Joy Hakim's Story of Science that present the major scientific innovations within the context of major works produced by Aristotle, Newton, Einstein, and progress which continues in theoretical physics.

    Learning how to make accurate and useful observations, investigate ideas, evaluate sources, and find out what’s really true, are important skills for scholars in all fields of endeavor.

    Students in Einstein Adds a New Dimension continue to develop their understanding of the historical context and great experiments of the world’s innovators.

    As the third part of The Story of Science series, Einstein Adds a New Dimension builds on the foundation set forward in the courses Aristotle Leads the Way and Newton at the Center.  Einstein Adds a New Dimension guides students through discoveries in modern physics, explaining the state of the science, while describing some of the current questions and areas of research.  Building on the themes in courses Aristotle and NewtonEinstein Adds a New Dimension helps students strengthen their solid basis of understanding, understand the nature and pace of change, and develop the insight, imagination, and skill to anticipate, jump in, and move forward with the new work of the future.

    Over the course of the year, we will explore the lines of evidence for the current theory of the universe; we will discover the nature of quarks and strings; and we will discuss alternative hypotheses and theories.  We will continue building the scaffold for later studies in science and other endeavors, and developing skills which will be used in career planning and development.

    This course will be using additional material from Thinking Physics by Lewis Carroll Epstein, but students are not required to have this book.

    Tests, homework, and grades are provided optionally and may be graded at home or by the instructor.  We fully support 2e students and will tailor testing, homework, and class participation so that it is low stress and meaningful for each student.  Students need to be able to do multiplication with fractions and ratios, and to understand the use of algebraic symbols.

    While some experiments are repeated from the Newton and Aristotle courses, students will encounter them on a different level. These courses do NOT need to be taken in a particular order.

    Find the Einstein Adds a New Dimension book here.

    Times listed are Eastern!

    5-10 students
    Suggested Ages: 13+ years old
    Meets: Tuesdays at 11:00 am, 15 weeks. Starts February 2nd.

    CLASS DESCRIPTION:

    Calling lovers of all things nautical. Come, gain some real understanding of the high seas. This is an interdisciplinary survey course that brings together physics, earth sciences, history, music, and folklore, as we dive back in time to age of sail. This course will give you a broader perspective of history and the world we live it and make you a better sailor to boot.

    Topics include:

    • A brief survey of historical water craft: What determines how fast they go? How will they do in a storm?

    • Why did sails become triangular?

    • Looking to the charts: An overview of nautical navigation

    • Reading the water — Navigating without chart or map

    • Dog Watch: Song, craft and story

    • Applied use of the simple machines of physics: Lever, Wheel & Axil, Pulley, Inclined Plane, Wedge, Screw, plus a few useful knots

    • Here there be monsters — Creatures of the Sea

    Students will be asked to complete short assignments to familiarize themselves with the material and ensure that they are able to explore any questions that arise. In addition, each student will be asked to propose a project which can be shared with the class in a short presentation. The topic and form of this presentation very much depend on your interests and inclination: Will it be a video about scrimshaw, charting a course to the Bahamas, or your take on a Shanty?

    5-10 students
    Suggested Ages: 13+ years old
    Meets: Thursdays at 11:00 am, 15 weeks. Starts Feb 4th.

    CLASS DESCRIPTION:

    Here’s the place to explore ways to express the things that are hard to express or that are in danger of going unnoticed.  Poetry is a healing art.  For the writer, putting things on paper — just so — can help bring clarity.  Having them written down holds those ideas and memories safe and can help release us from the need to play them again and again in our head.  Song lyrics are poetry too:  When you really want people to listen, nothing is better than to set your words to music.

    You are invited to grab a brand new journal and join us for an exploration of English language poetic forms.  We will also indulge in a few digressions into topics like why some of those forms don’t work in other languages, what forms exist in other languages that might be hard to do in English, or which comes first, the tune or the lyrics?  This is a writing intensive course.  Students are encouraged to cultivate their writer’s eye and the habit of expressive writing by keeping a journal of ideas and observations that seem as though they might prove poetry worthy.  We will study various poetic forms and try our hand at them.  Students are encouraged to share their poems, but may find other poems to share, as we explore the questions:  "Does this poem strictly follow the form?" and "What works well here?"

    Students who speak English as a Second Language or who suffer from a lack of confidence in their writing for any reason are encouraged to join and will be given extra help as needed.

    Meets: Thursdays at 2:00 pm, 15 weeks. Starts February 4th.

    CLASS DESCRIPTION:

    Do you like to make things? 

    Are you intrigued by learning about how things work? 

    Do you wish you had a few tips and techniques to make your projects come out more the way you wish they would? 

    Would you like a hands-on course, with creative homework that doesn’t require a major investment in materials? 

    Welcome!

    This is an art survey course offering a variety of applied technical material drawing from geometry, chemistry and history, with no studying or problem sets.  If you can add, subtract, multiple and divide, you’ve got all the pre-requisites you need —- You can even use a calculator.

    This course is creative project intensive.  Projects are intended to explore concepts, rather than  create portfolio pieces, thus perfection is not required.  Assignments will include Celtic knotworks, your choice of carpentry, quilt or garden patterns, perspective drawing, rendering texture (such a fur or bark), basic pigment color theory, the anatomy of a shadow, translucence, and even a few clues about expressive drawing of faces and figures, with an option to touch on historical trends like the popular modern manga and anime styles.  We will learn about paint and ink and even make a few samples of our own. Throughout it all, we will discuss processes of decay and how to make your art last if you want it to.

    You will need a multimedia drawing pad, ruler, compass, pencil and a small set of something to apply color (water colors, colored pencils, markers, etc),  as well as small amounts of various materials that might be found in the average kitchen.

    About the Instructor:

    Skia Laurence studied art at the Museum School in Boston , Lesley College and Rivier University  She studied technical drawing as a graduate student of archaeology at U.C.L.A. and earned a master’s certificate in Children’s Book Illustration at Hollins University.  She has done technical drawing both for archaeology and for technical documentation in industry.  She taught art to young people at Purple Crayon in San Francisco and the Chelmford Center for the Arts in Massachusetts.  She has been a juried participant in several shows and a featured artist at the Carolina Artist Gallery in Morehead City, North Carolina.  She studied museum conservation and restoration at U.C.L.A. and though correspondence with Oxford University and through hands on training at the National Museum of Iceland.

    Hey! I'm supposed to be getting $10/hour! How come my check is for $287.46? You need HOW MUCH?!? to retire? Can I really save a million dollars?!? I found a great apartment and awesome roommates! Can I afford it? What should I know about my roommates? They seem nice and that's enough, right? Taxes? Everyone is talking about what they are doing with their refund, how do I get mine? What do you mean my account is overdrawn? I still have checks! 

    These topics and many more will be covered as we touch on all the ways money affects the lives of responsible (and irresponsible) adults. We will talk about earning, saving, spending and investing $$$$. Budgets, borrowing, credit reports, taxes, retirement accounts, charitable giving, etc. Job applications to rental agreements we'll talk about the $$. We'll work with real world numbers for several different life stages and economic classes. All ages welcome, adults too!

    Days and Times Tuesdays, 5pm, 4 weeks, starting May 11th.

    Ages 12 through Adult

    Course Description

    This course is an introduction to three Social Contract philosophical theories by Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, and Jean-Jacques Rousseau.  We will use secondary sources to do an overview of each theory, compare-contrast them, and discuss how they influence how we think today.  Connections to historical, social, and political context will be included.  This course could be considered an approachable introduction to philosophy.

    Students will be expected to prepare for class and participate actively in our discussions (whether through voice or text chat).  Students will also be asked to maintain a thought journal throughout the course to aid reflection and discussion. 


    Outline

    Note: Readings should be done BEFORE the class listed so we can discuss it. 

    The Leviathan: Thomas Hobbes

    Life, Liberty, Property: John Locke

    The General Will: Jean-Jacques Rousseau

    Where do we use the Social Contract today?

    Hey! I'm supposed to be getting $10/hour! How come my check is for $287.46? You need HOW MUCH?!? to retire? Can I really save a million dollars?!? I found a great apartment and awesome roommates! Can I afford it? What should I know about my roommates? They seem nice and that's enough, right? Taxes? Everyone is talking about what they are doing with their refund, how do I get mine? What do you mean my account is overdrawn? I still have checks! 

    These topics and many more will be covered as we touch on all the ways money affects the lives of responsible (and irresponsible) adults. We will talk about earning, saving, spending and investing $$$$. Budgets, borrowing, credit reports, taxes, retirement accounts, charitable giving, etc. Job applications to rental agreements we'll talk about the $$. We'll work with real world numbers for several different life stages and economic classes. All ages welcome, adults too! Please sign up for a class with your age range as I do have a somewhat different focus with students 14 and younger than with those closer to financial independence.

    So, you want a description of what SRT:HPMOR Part 3 is going to be about?

    It’s going to be about so much awesomeness.

    It’s going to be about getting through 800+ pages of the material.

    It’s going to be about the answers to all the questions that have been bothering you – and also seeing how much we can answer ourselves, not just by our pattern completion abilities, not just because we can pretend to be wise, but because we can think rationally and therefore see what Harry will do, what the author will craft, and why.

    We will continue to explore the role of Hermione and the role of women in general, trying to decide whether this work is feminist or failing at that goal. 

    We will continue to delve deeply into the characters of Harry, Quirrell, Dumbledore, Malfoy, and others.

    And we’ll keep attacking the science, the rationality, and work on growing as rationalists ourselves.

    Once all has been answered, we’ll piece the puzzle together and see how it all fits.

    Class will meet for 16 sessions.

    All times are U.S. East Coast.   We will take a break on November 25th for Thanksgiving week.

    Students will have access to class recordings the day after each class.

    Science is not just discovery, it is self-discovery.

    Bread and Circuses 2: Catching Fire, Oppression, and Resistance 

    Section 1: Mondays and Thursdays 12:30 pm - 1:45 pm Eastern; starts June 7 for 8 weeks (15 sessions)

    Suzanne Collins Hunger Games series explores oppression and the inevitable resistance that rises out of such oppression..  The parallels to historical examples, particularly the Roman Empire, and much of the modern world, abound. In this course we’ll explore those parallels, working towards understanding effective resistance, and examining some of the problems that arise in revolution.  

    In Catching Fire, we move from a deep understanding of the oppression in the world of Hunger Games and begin to consider both how oppression gives rise to resistance and methods oppressors use to quash resistance.  We will explore how oppressed people can resist successfully against those with significantly more power.  And we will again incorporate an examination of science, economy, psychology, sociology, technology, and architecture (particularly that of the arena) through the lens of Catching Fire.  

    In Catching Fire we will draw comparisons throughout the book to four (or so) major historical and current examples of resistance.  These are Myanmar, Palestine, the Chinese Social Revolution, and (expansively) resistance within and against the U.S. throughout its history (including current).
