Community & Personal Development

Western Civilization I

Taught by Professor Julianne Cooper

This course is designed to introduce the student to the major developments,
concepts, and ideas that have shaped attitudes toward the individual in the
West from the earliest recorded history to the Italian Renaissance.  Class time
will be split between lecture and discussion.  In the first three weeks, students
will be introduced to reading, writing, and study methods that will help to
facilitate the learning process.  Students will be expected to do extensive
reading in primary sources selected for discussions.  All discussion readings
have been chosen to allow the student to examine texts that reflect the tenor
of the times in which they were written.  They are all considered ‘classics’
and should be a part of any educated person’s library.  You will use them the
rest of your life. At the conclusion of this course , students will have a working
knowledge of many important historical developments that have affected the changing
relationship between the individual and society.  They will also have exposure
to many of the most important thinkers in Western culture and have an understanding
of their influences through primary source materials.  This course is a core
experience for Liberty Harbor Academy graduates.  This is a lecture/discussion
format.

Community & Personal Development

Taught by Professor Michelle Lamontagne-Strout

Fridays at Liberty Harbor Academy are devoted to preparing students for both
their personal and professional lives.  Students participate in three distinct
courses, including: Community Learning, Life Skills, and Public Speaking. To
assist students with identifying their own skill-sets, community learning exposes
them to existing leadership talents from diverse sectors of the community.  Through
the exchange of viewpoints and experiences, students become aware of challenges;
opportunities and vital issues local leaders come face to face with every day.
Each week focuses on a new topic presented by local and state leaders, as well
as experts who present issues through presentations, discussions, and on-site
visits.  To assist with their own journey to becoming leaders and contributing
citizens, these activities are followed by simulation exercises and personal
reflection on goal setting, time management, decision making, and human behavior.
Our primary examples of leadership and citizenship will be explored utilizing
the resources available within the Greater Manchester community.  Because of
our central downtown location we will be walking to many of the on-site visits.
At the conclusion of this course, students will have a well-rounded perspective
of leadership qualities needed to manage groups ranging from small teams in
the workplace, to city government responsible for policy affecting an entire
community.  Students will make the connection between community leaders with
strong character and admirable examples of citizenship. To compliment the knowledge
gained through community learning, “Life Skills” focuses on skills our young
people need to learn in order to manage a healthy lifestyle as they approach
independence.  Topics range from Home Economics to the importance of understanding
Emotional Intelligence and time management.  The day ends with “Public Speaking”
where students gain practice giving the four categories of presentation – demonstrative,
informational, entertaining, and persuasive. Out goal is to develop well-balanced
and well-informed citizens, ready to step-up into their roles as future caretakers
of our community!

Tuition: $1200.00 (plus books and supplies).
