Prerequisite: None. Fulfills 3 credits in Area of Knowledge II.

Learning Community Course Description: Through a study of documentary and literary sources related to specific topics, this learning community will examine how the idea of "liberty" has developed and changed throughout the course of American history. Students will read, discuss and write about a wide variety of materials, including but limited to political documents, speeches, political treaties, letters, biographies, newspaper articles, poetry and novels, in an effort to understand what liberty has meant to others in the past and what it means to themselves today.

Through writing assignments, debates and class discussions, students will develop the critical thinking skills necessary to relate these documents both to the documents, historical context and to current national and international issues.
