Students will need to be able to write/type two lists and have a microphone for discussion. Video is encouraged, but not required.

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.

Excited about learning!
