This is a multidisciplinary, team-taught course involving work in both English and Social Studies. This course is taught in collaboration with the Minneapolis Telecommunications Network (MTN).
The essential questions for the course are:
How do your associations, the communities you serve, and your leadership roles have an impact on your identity?
How can a group, a community, a society produce thoughtful and positive change for humanity?
What does it mean to be a responsible citizen in our global society?
MTN and Minneapolis South High have partnered since 1989 in the Voices program. Voices is a Social Studies/English class at South, but a vital part of that class is the partnership with MTN. MTN trains students in the Voices class in camera and editing, and the students make documentaries and PSA's on important social issues.
Video Voices is on Mondays at 8 p.m. on MTN 17.
VOICES stands for Values, Options, Issues and ChoicEs in Society.
