Course Synopsis


This course is designed to promote discussion about diversity issues within American society. The course will focus on stereotypes, social justice issues, immigration, racial disparity, cultural contributions and current issues. The goal of the course is to promote enlightened perspectives about the eclectic society in which we live as well as foster a more tolerant school community. The course utilizes a wide array of primary and secondary source materials to encourage students to form more independent opinions on topics of concern in modern American society.
