This class will be project oriented and will include making several videos. In 8 weeks, we will not read every story, however we will look at excerpts from every novel and will be reading 2 novels completely.

Philosophy with Mr. Cook

Philosophy with Mr. Cook

Who am I? Why am I here? Do I have a self? Is there a God? Am I a mind and a body, or all physical matter? D o I possess free will, or all of my actions determined? These are among the great questions of philosophy, all of which we’ll explore in this eight-week survey of Western philosophy and thought. We will cover the major periods and ideas of Western philosophy and how those ideas influenced thought, culture, and life to the present. The course begins with the philosophers of ancient Greece, and proceeds thematically throughout philosophical history, touching down in the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the 19th and 20th centuries. In addition, we will explore basic philosophical concepts like logic, logical fallacies, and rhetoric. You will learn to think like a philosopher, and to come up with your own philosophical positions on the topics we study. In the end, you will think more critically, analytically, and deeply... and you'll be prepared to drop great quotes at swanky dinner parties.
Materials: All readings will come from the course text, Philosophy: The Quest for Truth, 8th ed., by Pojman and Vaughn, Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2012.
Meetings: Tuesdays, 9:00 AM - 11:00 AM
Primary Assessments: You will complete 1-3 (depending on length) philosophical readings every week, submitting assigned responses via Google Classroom. In addition, you will complete three (3) short essays (2-3 pages). The final consists of a 5-page “capstone” paper encapsulating the major philosophical questions studied in class.

Terror and Terrorism with Mr. Nunn

Terror and Terrorism with Mr. Nunn

Fear is one of the most powerful human emotions. If harnessed it can serve the ambitions of individuals and governments with glorious visions of the future. This half-credit, eight-week social studies class will explore how different state and non-state actors have employed terrorism and violence to help accomplish their own political, economic, and/or religious goals. Using a mix of primary documents and contemporary news articles, we will explore the connections between terror, ideology, technology, and media, as well as investigate the targets, audiences, methods, and the results of terror. Topics include the French Revolution from 1789--1794, the Ku Klux Klan from 1865--1960s, the Russian Revolution and USSR from 1917--1940, Northern Ireland from the 1920s--1998, and the so-called Islamic State (ISIS) from its beginnings in 2014 to the present day.
