This course is designed in seminar form and involves students in research and discussion.  They consider a list of current books and other types of media as they formulate and sharpen their world view and spiritual awareness.
Timelines are constructed which then provide a framework on which to build evidence of values and influences on particular issues.  They help students to realize the order of events around a particular focus, while considering the political, economic, spiritual, and literary context.  Here is an example of a basic american studies timeline.
While gathering a specific perspective on the issues, students write essays and do presentations on their developing interests.
