CoffeeHouse / CocoaHouse
CoffeeHouse/ CocoaHouse is a central room for studying, visiting, and snacking between classes. Students may choose to do schoolwork or just hang out and talk with their friends. Though TSC Staff monitors these periods to ensure appropriate and courteous behavior, students are free to choose how they wish to spend their time. As the name suggest, Coffee and Cocoa are available, as well as light snacks. The cost for CoffeeHouse is $15 per month per period.
F.A.C.T.s and Fallacy
Back by popular demand: Fakenews And Critical Thinking! This CoffeeHouse alternative is one of our students’ favorite things! Rather than study or visit in CoffeeHouse during off periods, students can sign up for this current, relevant, thought-provoking and highly-interactive session.
FACTs and Fallacy will include current events and revisit the topic of logic as introduced in the 2019-20 school year. What is meant in our current world culture by right? Left? What is the worldview of those offering us the news? Learning what is happening in current events teaches us about our culture and our place in the world. This exciting class explores not only current events, but also teaches how to recognize common logical fallacies. The class format will be discussion, debate, readings and video clips, with little or no homework assigned.
FACTs and Fallacy will be offered during 4th period CoffeeHouse. Cost for FACTs is $15 per month per period.
F.A.C.T.s and World Religions
New this year: Fakenews And Critical Thinking with some comparative religion added in for even more challenging thinking, discussion and debate.
