I have a bachelors degree in history. I am a frequent political commenter to a variety of news organizations and have a history of activism and debating for my political beliefs. This lesson will have 5 steps.
1). The lessons will begin with 3 options. one will be the biggest news story of the week from CNN or 2 other political topics.
2). We will watch a video of the biggest news story of the week or you will listen to a lecture about one of the political topics you have chosen.
3). I will teach you any words you do not understand from the video or lecture.
4). After the video or lecture you will ask at least 3 questions about the story or lecture.
