Examining moments in history, participants will discuss major historical events and speculate on the "What ifs..." of the past. Focusing on major turning points in their personal lives and communities, as well as a global perspective, participants will analyze the impact of these events on basic decision making about lifestyle and morality. Through research, one-on-one interviews, and time off campus, participants will take part in stimulating class discussions about these "plastic moments."
