Class Experience

To analyze news and see connections to history, culture and develop critical thinking.  
Part of my masters degree is in political science and a large part of the Swedish curriculum is to inspire critical thinking. 
To search for news to present in class and to read the news posted in the classroom before each class. 
Two pages with instructions about how to find news and create a summary for the other students.
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 1 - 2 hours per week outside of class.
Please be aware that the news might include sensitive material (violence, racism, politics)
