Current Events


In this semester-long elective course for upperclassmen, students will work to understand world events as they arise, contextualizing them within our political and social histories. The content of this course will remain highly flexible depending on what makes the news over the course of the year. Regardless, all students will leave this class with the ability to find information from reliable sources, verify it, recognize distortions, and create a more informed and complex version of reality. There will also be opportunities to practice journalistic writing and explore journalism as an industry.
