In this class, I will curate articles from The Wall Street Journal. Participants in the class will read and think about the articles before class. I will provide some questions to facilitate the thought process but expect participants will have questions of their own. Each class will be structured around specific themes such as economics, education, the environment, foreign affairs, trade, health care, politics, social media, tax policy, etc. The articles selected will be about issues and not the “news of the day”. I hope to facilitate a reasonable, civil discussion of these issues and active listening by all attendees. Using the Wall Street Journal means our starting point might be a little more conservative than it would be if we used The New York Times or The Washington Post. I invite and encourage the many OLLI members who normally read the Times or the Post but not The Wall Street Journal to enroll and attend. This will be a discussion class, totally dependent on the willingness of all participants to read four newspaper articles per week, to think about the ideas presented, and to be prepared to discuss those ideas in class.
