LLS 1351 - What’s Going On? Issues Forums in the Classroom

Credits: 3 hrs.
American citizens need to become more informed about common problems that affect the nation and to have a voice in how policymakers deal with difficult issues. Issues Forums will provide you with the opportunity to learn about issues that affect you at the local and national level, to carefully examine and discuss choices or ways to deal with issues, and to have your opinions included in reports that inform others. The class will name and frame a local issue for public deliberation. You  will explore issue books from the National Issues Forum Institute, information from the media and from the book, America Now.
