2018 Seminar Descriptions

Governor’s School Newspaper

Dr. Robert Nanney

 

Want to place your special mark on the journalistic account of the 2018 GSH experience? If so, this seminar is for YOU. We need creative, enthusiastic Scholars with a special passion for writing, taking photos, editing and designing this year's newspaper, which will also be named by the staff. You will be in charge of putting together this exciting, permanent souvenir of GSH, have fun and earn a resume "hit" all at the same time. Scholars who are on their high school newspaper staffs are especially encouraged to participate and gain further knowledge and experience, but "rookies" may also join in. We will need writers, photographers, graphic artists and cartoonists, so we'll find something unique for everyone to contribute. We'll also need those who are skilled at planning and organizing people and information. Don't miss out on this special opportunity!

 

Governor’s School Yearbook

Ms. Tomi Parrish

 

Get ready to create! Staff members in this seminar will select a theme, organize materials and design a keepsake book that will help Scholars remain connected long after their experiences at Governor’s School have ended. Illustrations, names, addresses, quotes, photographs – the publication goes camera ready to UT Martin’s Digital Printing Services and is distributed near the end of Governor’s School, just in time for mass signing.

 

Ethics Bowl

Ms. Merry Brown

 

Should parents use electronic equipment (GPS, etc.) to track their children’s whereabouts? Should reproductive technologies be limited? Under what circumstances (if any) should confidentiality agreements be broken? If you are interested in thinking through these (and more!) ethical questions, sign up for the Ethics Bowl seminar. As a group we will talk about major ethical theories to prepare for debating contemporary ethical questions. You will have the opportunity to showcase your ethical insights when you present and argue your positions in an ethics competition at the end of the term in front of your fellow Governor’s School for the Humanities colleagues.
