Current Events: Weekly Events Around the World!

This is an ongoing class that will discuss current events! Each week that we meet, we will be talking about a current event I have found. Students will then work with me to evaluate it, look at all sides, and have a healthy discussion.

Class Experience

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. 
1 hour per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
**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. **
