This fun, lab-based, comprehensive biology class will cover all topics in a UC-approved syllabus.  Students will research assigned topics at home before meeting for once-a-week community learning, group demonstrations and high school level high-quality labs.

English Language and Literature - High School

This is a co-designed high school English class.  Students and facilitators will work together to create a curriculum that addresses student goals and interests in literary analysis and various forms of writing, such as personal essay, formal essay, poetry, persuasive essay, and others.

American Government and Economics - High School

The first semester of this class will be American Government, and the second will be Economics.  Students and facilitators will work together to create a curriculum that addresses student interests and inquiries, as well as all topics in a UC-approved syllabus.  We will work on political and economic analysis, critical thinking, and communication skills.  If there is interest, we will travel to Sacramento, Washington DC, Chicago, or New York City to increase our learning.  (Additional cost for travel.)

Big History Project - Middle and High School

Big History Project is a big picture look at the history of the world from The Big Bang to Current Times.  This course weaves, science, language arts, and social studies together for a comprehensive look at the history of US.  In addition to the historical contents, students will be developing writing and analysis skills.  High school students will be able to use this class as a resource in the following courses:  World Geography, World History, English, General Science.

This club will be directed by the teens themselves.  Together, and with the help of the facilitators, they will create and implement a plan for their time together.  It may include gaming, movies, field trips, events, hang-out time, community service, conversation, dialogue...  The possibilities are endless...
