    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would definitely recommend this course, and I often do. This course is extremely interesting, as it focuses on mainstream issues from a variety of country's perspectives. In a country so focused on itself, it was very interesting to view the world issues from a different side.

    Course highlights:

    Highlights were the class discussions we often had, and the variety of material that we covered. I learned about environmental issues, women's rights, and other interesting topics.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    There is a lot of speaking alone and giving presentations in front of the class, but do not stress them too much. They are only for your benefit. Prepare for the AICE final!

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course was a nice change of pace from the traditional academic subjects students are used to. Global Perspectives is a course where students have the opportunity to learn events that are currently happening around the world. This allows for students to become more involved in current events which ultimately educate students on how to solve the problems they will face in adulthood.

    Course highlights:

    The highlights of this course were learning about how the current conflicts are all traced back to politics, thus shaping one's affiliation to a political party. For example, gun control is a big controversy, one of which was thoroughly discussed within the class. After being taught an unbiased presentation on the pros and cons of gun control, students then formed his/her own opinion on the topic and was able to shift towards a political party that would resolve the conflict. In learning all of the big controversies, and both sides to each argument, students gain an appreciation for the multiple perspectives the classmates will take, and will be able to understand the current issues.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    To succeed in this course, one would need to have good research skills. This class is primarily based off of heavy research in order to learn the multiple perspectives on every current controversy. Research skills would include: knowledge of MLA?proper citations, the ability to research an abundant amount of data on one topic, and to go at each topic from a unique perspective in order to avoid redundancy and crate originality in solutions.
