The curriculum for this class is intended to invite younger students to explore current events and speak about them effectively.  Over the course of the class, four current events will be covered. Students will learn the historical background of the event and analyze multiple perspectives. Students will be taught how to use an analytical approach to understand how our world today is deeply connected to their lives. Each current event covered will have different Public Speaking activities and short form debates culminating in the Parent Showcase.


Cogito Speaking of Current Events students will compete in the Cogito SpAr Tournament during the course session to practice their skills in a new environment.
