Introductory Global Thinking (Debate & Writing)

Ages 10-11

Why did Russia invade Ukraine? How does the civil war in Syria create a humanitarian crisis in Jordan? Why do all the countries in the Eurozone use the same currency?

In order to answer these questions, students need to learn how to think critically about the globalized world we live in today. In this course, we teach students to think, speak and write from a global perspective. We tackle the tough social and cultural issues in modern society through intensive, interactive class discussions. We ask students to write, present, and debate about a wide variety of topics. In Global Thinking, students learn how to analyze the crucial elements that drive the pace of current events, and how to speak and write about those elements with confidence and clarity.

This course combines Critical Reasoning with Debate, two of our most popular courses!
