This video gives a quick look at the incredible student experience called Student Senate. There really is nothing like it. Learning leadership skills, impressing college recruiters, meeting fascinating experts, and developing the ability to work together and still disagree. We're looking for Student Senators for 2021.
Since 1999, and each fall since, Dave works with 15-30 high school students about our great U.S.A. The course weaves great moments and movements in our history with why and how our government and private institutions function, or fail to do so. Taught from a Christian World View with an eye on original contextualization, Dave emphasizes organic documents and ideas that shaped our Declaration of Independence, the U.S. Constitution and our public and private institutions - especially the roll of the nuclear family. Alongside theory, we study how it really works - politics, parties, media, taxes. Hundreds of students have learned truth about the greatest nation on God's green earth.
This student-led learning experience is unlike any other. Students choose which subjects to study, invite expert witnesses, write bills, debate and adopt their positions. It is a wonderful leadership training experience - more than 400 Senators have completed the process. (See more photos below)
