Seminars For Scholars
Seminars for Scholars is an activity for young people who care about the world. Our interests range from what exactly is going on in Guantanamo Bay to how we can inform ourselves about memes that affect our lives. Throughout the year we communicate about our research via our blog, and once a year we select a Socratic dialogue to study and discuss during a teach-in. We also have teach-ins connected to our research, where we gather to teach each other what we have learned about a specific subject we’ve chosen. This year’s theme will be determined at our first officers’ meeting.
*To join the club please write a letter expressing your interest, and place it in the mailbox of Ms. Jaffe, in the Main Office. Make sure you include an active email address, your name, and your student ID number in your letter.*
