US Grade 9 - 12
The most important part of this class is learning how to check the creditability of the media resource. Open discussion will be encouraged with time divided between students to each read their articles. The topics that are approved for this class are: * Any new, current inventions *Any new, current science / space / archology *New issues concerning Earth. For example: earthquakes, flooding, Tornadoes, Tsunamis/ Geology news. *National News Pieces must be fact based, and not Political. I...
Students will learn how to check for credibility by understanding how to site a source. Students will be able to research the media sources. For example knowing the difference between a published article and a blog. All current event articles will be excepted. However, if it is inappropriate due to graphic content, or if it is political/religious and not from an unbias standpoint I will redirect the topic to a new discussion. All political and religious discussions must come from a non bias standpoint, and only be related to the article. This is not a place to discuss religious or political view points. Politics are part of current events and articles may inevitable include political or religious information. We will not expand upon those ideas. Instead we will discuss the result of the event that took place in the article.
In my classes students are free to voice their opinions and debate with one another regarding their ideas while respecting one another's point of view. Students can talk about the knowledge they already have on the subject. I try to help students are comfortable in my classroom so that they can be actively involved. THIS CLASS WILL NOT BE A POLITICAL DEBATE CLASS.
Homework OfferedA current event article that the student can read to the class for discussion is required for each class.

A media article that the student can read to the class for discussion is required for each class.
Learners will not need to use any apps or websites beyond the standard Outschool tools.
This class may discuss topics like the evacuation of people in Afghanistan or other Global catastrophes. Students will not be allowed to point fingers at any political parties. This is also not a class meant to incite fear. It is meant to discuss the current events and to share thoughts about it. Students can contribute ideas about how to solve problems. Students who bring news about inventions, space, or scientific findings are free to discuss how those articles will impacts the future.
Students can use all outlets to find articles they would like to bring to class. Part of the class will be to help them understand if the article is a valid fact or not.
