Podcast

Seniors in the Social Justice class created eleven podcasts during their first-semester class. Starting in November, Ms. Weber's Social Justice class was divided into groups. From there, they spent the remainder of the semester researching, reading, writing, interviewing, recording, and editing on a social justice topic of their choice. The requirement was to connect their topic to Catholic Social Teaching and the United Nations Sustainable Development Global Goals. In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals by 2030 to make the world a better place. #GlobalGoals
