Hey sir, can you post the intended curriculum here for laughs? Many of us don't truly understand the American Experience™ and this could help shed some light on it.
(Don't share anything that would be too specific to your location/school: I'm assuming it's a state-wide curriculum like we have here)>>11447
I had one who was never explicit in his beliefs but was evidently 'left'-leaning. There was an optional activity after his lectures (night time) where he would put on films, some were comedies or culturally significant to our field of science, but many were thought-provocative like the Enron documentary (Smartest Men in the Room
), 12 Angry Men
, etc. and would occasionally hint at ideas of collaboration and social constructiveness in his talks. In an analytical field, it was clear he was someone who could see problems in the systems we have and why they fuck everything up for us professionally (think of the whistleblowers in the Challenger
disaster that were ignored, resulting in loss of life). There was even a tutorial dedicated to rhetoric, because 'being correct or right doesn't mean anything if you can't get your boss to listen to you', and discussion dedicated to the risks and potential strategies of whisteblowing. Not comparable to what you said but a potential eye-opener, and not one that could get you fired either.
As he would say, he wasn't an educator, he was a teacher.
