What is Poverty? Engaging Poverty as a Good Citizen

What is poverty? The United States has one definition, but this 4-part course seeks to untangle the many different ways poverty can be defined and applied. We will define poverty in the United States, go over relative and absolute measures of poverty, and explore alternative ways to defining poverty. We will look directly at American social policy to understand how current poverty measurements impact social program development and implementation and the individuals who may or may not receive related services and aid. Then, we will look at how alternative measures may impact our social policies. Each week will incorporate ways (social distance-friendly) in which young people (grades 6-12) can think about their roles in society to impact policy, individuals, their communities, and their own futures.

Topics in Religious Studies

Religion is a force that has shaped history around the globe, from the development and influence of Buddhism in East Asia to the ongoing legacy of the Crusades on the conflicts in the Middle East. This course will look at a variety of topics, shaped by student inquiry, in order to better understand the role of religion in society and history throughout the world. We’ll be utilizing history and sociology to understand religion as a human phenomenon rather than a question of truth or theology — this is a secular course, akin to what students will encounter in Religious Studies Departments in colleges and universities. For high schoolers.

Art + Science & Math

n class one, we will research and talk about rainforest animals we like. We will start to draw them in class. For homework (optional), students will have instructions for how to make a book out of things at home (paper, tape, scissors, string). In class two, we will write stories for our books and illustrate them. Between class one and two I will do some research on the actual animals the participants chose and share this information. For weeks 3 and 4, we will develop a different art project that engages science and math, based on requests of the class. This class comes with “homework” projects that take 30-45 minutes between classes. Students can also do optional additional research on the science topics. Parents can contact me at amy.whitaker@nyu.edu.
