Religion and Politics (Civic and Philosophy for Kids Series)

I am passionate about teaching young and old to think and engage with government and politics critically. I have a over 20 years of teaching experience, including as a home-educating parent. I also experience participating in national and international governments (campaigns and elections), and leading research, consultancy, and development projects. I am honoured by the opportunity to share a thinking space with young learners. My aim is to help learners sharpen their analytical and communication skills so they can come to their OWN views on issues that have no easy answers.
A worksheet reviewing material covered in the course will be handed out via e-mail after the class.
