Five Scholarships for the Global Game Academy Available
SJND is excited to offer 5 students a scholarship opportunity to enroll in a Social Studies Enrichment Course called The Global Game Academy. Student-Citizens of The Global Game Academy will gain a keen and in-depth understanding of politics, economics, business, finance, science and world affairs --- what we call "The Global Game" --- through immersion in current affairs by reading the New York Times and Wall Street Journal every day and then engaging in two 45-minute guided interactive discussions of the material per week.
Every morning each student will receive an e-mail giving them a list of at least 5 recommended articles to read in each paper (at least 3 articles in each paper will be mandatory). Sessions will be held every Sunday mornings from 10:00 a.m. to 10:45 a.m. (Pacific Time) and Wednesday afternoons from 5:30 to 6:15 p.m. The first course starts on August 30th, so enroll as soon as possible!
