This is an ongoing class where we discuss current events or interesting topics that are not covered as much in the news or that are cool to discuss. Students will evaluate it, look at all sides, and have a healthy discussion.

Class experience

US Grade 6 - 9
Students will learn how to find information and talk respectfully about events happening in the world. 
I have been a certified teacher in various subjects for many years. I believe critical thinking and current events are needed in our schools and I love teaching this class. I discussed current events with my charter students and they enjoyed getting news and information from around the world that they normally would not get. 

I am a certified teacher in various subjects and have a Master's degree in International Business as well as a Master's in Education. I have worked in the international business realm before I was a teacher so I am well versed on things going on in the world. Here is the US, we often only get world news if it is on our local news, but I dive into international news sites and pull information from those sites and news sources. I feel it is vital for students to get real world news and know what is happening in the world, and how it effects us. 
**We will NOT be discussing anything that is massively controversial in this class or certain events happening right now that could cause upset to students. I feel that is up to parents to share with their students. We will also not discuss Covid-19 or the vaccine. That topic has many various opinions and will not be discussed. Other things that will NOT be discussed will be the following: BLM, US Elections, Racial-related topics, LGBTQ-related topics, Gun-related topics, or anything controversial right now. **
