Case Studies of Ethical Character (6 weeks)
In the story of human history, extraordinary individuals stand out for words and actions, courage, and inner strength.  Our current history with the COVID-19 pandemic and the civil unrest brought about by issues of equal justice for all people bring to our attention heroic actions by ethical people. This class will provide the opportunity to see what makes such individuals in various historical moments tick and to deepen our understanding of ethics from critically analyzing what they did and what motivated their actions.

 

Human history includes your personal history, and you may have a family member or peer who has heroically stood up for others, for a cause, or for you.  Classmates will have opportunities to introduce each other to these personal heroes to advance the ethics of us all.  Your personal core values will be challenged in your teen years.  Here is an opportunity to learn how others have been able to stand firm in their beliefs and apply their stories to our own lives.


The Tools of Argument: How to Think, Argue, and Win (6 weeks)
We empower our TTK students with the skills of expressing their beliefs clearly and concisely. If they are going to argue, we want to be sure they do it well and with good training. We will teach them how to reason with clarity, relevance, and purpose, preparing them to stand up for themselves in controversy, public speak with ease, and debate on a variety of subjects. We will also cover fallacies, especially in the world of marketing. Our class is designed to equip and sharpen young minds in preparation for a complicated and sometimes just plain tricky world.
