Art Sept 4-8

Line Project

 Students have chosen interesting compositions to exemplify the use of line in art. This week they will grid and enlarge their models and begin to apply different lines to create the illusion of texture and depth.

Political Science – Sept 4-8

Attached to this message you will find a nice summary of the court system in the United States.

MIDTERMS THIS FRIDAY – The test will be a comprehensive exam covering the three major themes we’ve covered so far this school year

  1. The function of government and the appropriate balance between government power and personal freedom. This will include some examination of *how* power is controlled by the system of checks and balances and by the inclusion of protections of individual rights in the constitution of the United States, Honduras, and many other nations around the world.
  2. The election process in the United States. We will be focusing on the different functions of primary elections versus the general election. Students will be required to have a command of how the electoral college works and what influence “winner take all” states (Red States, Blue States) have on how a presidential candidate allocates resources (what 2-3 states are key to winning the 2020 presidential election).
  3. The structure of the court system. The different kinds of courts, juries, and burdens of proof. What an appellate court does and the difference between the useless concept of “fairness” and the useful concept of “constitutional”.
  4. .(22) Summary of the functions of the different courts

Mr. Stewart’s Weekly Blog (Aug. 21-25) Political Science

Greetings from politics central!!

We have just embarked on a new unit which will examine the electoral process in the United States for positions in the federal government (House of Representatives, Senate, President). Our first lesson was an overview of some of the major policy positions of the two major political parties in the United States (Republican, Democrat) and the students were invited to compare their own opinions on 11 key issues to the stated platform position of the two major political parties. This was done to encourage the students to go beyond picking a candidate for superficial reasons and instead challenged the students to look for the “best fit” for their particular set of political ideas . . . whether a student will ultimately end up voting in an election in Honduras, or the United States, or points beyond; the process of examining candidates and finding the best fit is a more or less universal truth in any kind of democracy.

The remainder of the week will be spent examining the role of primary elections (or primary and caucus season in the case of presidential races), the part that the national party conventions play in crafting and articulating the respective party platforms, and the role that both gerrymandering and the electoral college play in affecting outcomes of elections and the political strategies that underly close races.

For good measure, and because his political point of view eclipsed all those who came before him, today (Monday) the students were given a brief exposure to the writings of Niccolo Machiavelli and were asked to consider whether his advice might apply to the modern day.

Please let me know if you have any questions about this leg of our exciting journey.

Yours,

Mr. Ian Stewart
