Right now America is caught up in a wake of political drama centered around a number of issues. The Zika virus spreading fast, the over use of antibiotics, contaminated water supplies with lead, an ever present threat of another terrorist attack, and hopeful presidential candidates sharing words of hate and making false promises. Living in this world today I am reminded by what James Madison once said “The essence of Government is power; and power, lodged as it must be in human hands, will ever be liable to abuse.” If what James Madison states is true, I say then it is important that we have open minded educated leaders ready to tackle the problems that our country and our world faces today. In my class students will learn how to be these educated leaders. Through the year students will learn how to think critically as they analyze, interpret, and evaluate historical content, while at the same time sorting through bias and looking at history through multiple perspectives.
