Foundations of Modern Politics is open to students aged 15 and above.
The class will meet every Friday between August 28th and December 18th (except the Friday after Thanksgiving) from 2:30 to 3:35 EST. No make-up sessions will be given, but recordings of the class will be available for all students.
All emails exchanged between students and Mr. Gibbs should be copied to a parent. All emails sent from Mr. Gibbs to individual students will be copied to parents. No private conversations between underage students and Mr. Gibbs will take place.
Students are expected to use their real names and unmodified backgrounds when in class Zoom sessions.
Students will be clearly informed of due dates for the two papers. It is the responsibility of the student to turn in work. If a student does not turn in work, Mr. Gibbs will not remind or hound the student to do so, neither will parents be notified.
Students are expected to be courteous and polite to one another in class. They are also expected to represent and defend their opinions with dignity and common sense. Disagreement between students will happen, but this is simply part of discussing politics and philosophy like mature adults. If one student’s feelings are hurt by another student, it does not necessarily mean anyone has been mistreated or that an apology is warranted.
Class will begin each Friday with the assumption that students have already done the reading which is being discussed.
