World Views

World Views is a required trimester course for Sixth Formers. The course examines the ethical questions behind many of the contentious issues in today’s world and provides students the opportunity to regularly engage in civil discourse and reflection. Topics are generated by faculty and students as well as current events. Each student gives a presentation to the class on a topic of his choice and then leads the class in a group discussion on that topic for a class period. The course provides a setting where students are encouraged to develop their own ethical and moral viewpoints about issues of importance to them in the world while also developing the skills needed to communicate effectively about difficult issues.
