“Deliberation and debate is the way you stir the soul of our democracy.”  --Jesse Jackson


Current Events: A Debate of Wits and Wisdom is designed to enhance the students' understanding of people, issues, and events that shape our world. The course will begin with an analysis of global issues that shape the news. Each student will select a global hotspot and provide the class with information relating to the people, place, and events that influence the region. Emphasis will be placed on the United States' interest in the hotspot. The intent of this unit is to broaden the class's perspective of the world. Students will be challenged to develop opinions regarding world events and debate their differing perspectives.
