This is a seminar in the Socratic tradition. That means the teacher will not simply deliver lessons. Instead each student will read material, and then everyone will discuss it so that we can understand new ideas.
The class will be held in English. However, we will not study about the English language. We will use English as a tool for learning about society and social change. Use English as much as you can during class discussions and in your presentations.
You must complete the reading before class. When you come to class, you should be prepared to talk about the themes in the reading for the week. Everyone will have a chance to ask questions, share opinions, and learn from one another.
In addition, groups of students will work together on a presentation about a social issue. Your presentation will be based on a book you read about an issue you choose.
Outside of class, you will work on your own independent project. You can choose a recommended project that interests you, or you can create your own project, suitable to your own interests and the English skills you want to improve.
