Class Experience

This class is taught in English.
Students will improve their understanding of the concepts of liberalism and conservatism as philosophies.  Students will engage their higher-order thinking skills by assessing, evaluating, synthesizing, and analyzing information.  
I have a degree in political science with a minor in history.  Throughout my travels around the world and the United States, I've seen misconceptions and a lack of understanding around this very important topic.  There are many people who want to talk about politics, but there are not many who can do so without injecting their own personal opinions.  I'm excited to offer this information, free from opinion, in a way that promotes higher-order thinking skills.
No homework is assigned for this class.
Students will need to be able to write/type two lists and have a microphone for discussion. Video is encouraged, but not required.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
There is no assessment in this course. 
1 hour per week in class, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
Students will be talking about political issues - current and past.  All content is objective.  The students will be reminded at the beginning of class that this should be a safe place where all ideas are welcome, and of appropriate ways to agree and disagree with someone.  We will also be watching a short unbiased video on political ideology via Crash Course on YouTube.  If you would like to preview this video, I will be happy to send it to you.
