This course provides students the opportunity to explore current culturally relevant issues in the United States. Course participants will determine the foci of the topics covered (e.g. education, the arts, language, and religion) and address them in persuasive/argumentative presentations. In addition, participants will individually explore the issues in a specific region of the US (e.g. the South or the Midwest). Both activities will provide students with ample material to strengthen their discussion skills, to further develop their presentation and language skills, as well as to expand their knowledge on current culturally relevant topics. Please note that 1) this course does not focus on the political aspects of the issues, and 2) this course is open to students who have already taken Current Trends and Developments in the USA – Sociopolitical Perspectives.
