UPDATED on Oct. 17 (re: class times and tuition.)
We are offering two live, online classes for teens, starting the week of October 25th:
"Propaganda and the Personal" - This course will explore propaganda, politics, and the personal, with a focus on the 20th Century up to the present moment. We will examine some of the key players, the ideologies, and the techniques that have led us to the current crisis, as well as what our part in it has been and could be.
We will compassionately interrogate our own biases and assumptions so that we are not doomed to repeat, and we will find ways forward – to begin building a future that we truly want for ourselves and our communities.
There will be assigned reading, as well as viewing of video content, and there will be some short writing assignments as well as a final paper or creative project. There are no tests in this course.
"Our Common-Law Foundations" - This course will utilize the Socratic method to explore the roots of the modern western legal system. We will be using outside sources, and students should expect lots of real-time conversation. There will be some reading to be done outside of class, as well as some thinking. There may also be some short writing assignments, but the core of this class is really the in-class discussions. There will be no tests.
The price for each of these classes is $320 (plus a small materials fee).
