Course Description: Students wanting to take this class will help to design and build it from the ground up and as such, will be able to add "curriculum development" to their high school resumes. As a group, we'll create an official course description, syllabus and criteria for grading. This class will be broken into trimesters. Each student will be responsible for researching, writing about and presenting on a specific topic at the end of each term. Oral presentations will be performed for all classmates and parents. Students will need to bring laptops, tablets or phones to class in order to check headlines and cite sources for the arguments they make.

To secure enrollment in this course, a non-refundable deposit of $150 is required at time of registration.
