Contemporary Issues

Prerequisite: World History and Geography I or II


Course Description:

This semester-long course provides students with the skills and knowledge needed to effectively analyze the major issues and events that impact the United States today.  Students explore the various media outlets (newspapers, magazines, electronic media, television, radio, and film) in order to better understand how news is both disseminated and digested by the public.  An in-depth analysis of the media’s presentation of contemporary issues and events helps students develop the habits of mind necessary for responsible citizenship.  Students are actively engaged in this class through discussion, inquiry, debate, interviews, role-playing, and presentations.
