Broaden Your Horizons - Learn Something New!

 

Description

Do you have a curious mind?  Do you want to know more about how the world works? Come eat and relax while we will watch one or two educational videos per session from TED-Ed.  After each session, we will reflect and chat about what we have learned. Topics could include:

 

Why are cats so weird?

Who decides what art means?

How can you change someone’s mind?

Why elephants never forget.

What really happens to the plastic bottle you throw away?

How to Participate

How to get the most out of our Ted discussions

Some 'ground rules': Guidelines can help clarify expectations and foster an environment of mutual respect and collaborative inquiry 

Sample Guidelines for Class Participation

  • Respect other's rights to hold opinions and beliefs that differ from your own
  • If you disagree - challenge the idea, not the person.
  • Be courteous
  • Don't interrupt or engage in private conversations while others are speaking.
  • Share responsibility for including all voices in the discussion.
  • Recognize that we are all still learning.  Be willing to change your perspective and make space for others to do the same.

Schedule

1) Think about the Topic before we watch a clip

2) Share any predictions you may have

3) What new things did you learn?

4) Any other thoughts or wonderings you may have?
