We will be discussing historical and political events as presented by Howard Zinn. Students are encourage to agree and disagree with what they read, and to question perspective. Obviously, students will come to the classroom with their own opinions and political allegiances. While students may introduce partisan conversation into the discussion, I will work to ensure that conversations stay civil and rooted in discussion, analysis and historical events.
