An innovative program where kids learn what is going on in the world. At the end of the program your child will be able to understand all the news headlines that are going on and explain it to others. We mix Geography, History, Culture and a lot of fun together to make kids understand what is the context of the news. This is a class where BBC, CNN, CNBC and a bunch of other news (including FOX!) is all mixed together in a fun and very relaxed environment. Kids learn to see both sides of the news and question things so that they form their own opinions.
In this open format class, there is no question that cannot be asked. The focus is really to make youth way more aware of what is happening around the world.
Topics covered include: Current NAFTA negotiations, Syrian Civil War, Refugee Crisis, Mid East issues, Brexit and Current European Political Scene, China, India and population growth, Women's Rights, Issues on Global Warming, Ontario News, Technology growth and lots more!
This class is highly recommended for kids who are in the Kids Learn about Money Level 2 class!
