Current Problems

Citizens in our society should be aware of the world around them and should have the ability to thoughtfully and critically analyze issues faced by our society and our government.  Current Problems, Issues, and Events is a course which gives students the opportunity to investigate, inquire about, and discuss current events issues which are facing our society today.   Students will be encouraged to identify cause and effect relationships and recognize fallacies in reasoning and propaganda devices.   Students will also be asked to apply knowledge they have learned in other courses as they formulate reasoned opinions about given topics and defend and deliberate these opinions with others.
