The course is student-run, and will primarily consist of guest speakers, breakout sessions, and discussions in addition to the weekly high school visits.

Two short reflection papers at the middle and end of the quarter.

Credit is assigned based on participation in class and high school visits, as well as satisfactory completion of the reflection papers mentioned above.
