H1994: The Message in Splash Spring 16 (Apr. 02, 2016)
An entire class on Grandmaster Flash and the Furious Five's classic song The Message. The song's history, impact, significance, and just straight-up dopeness will all be discussed. There will be a special focus on the last verse of the song, arguably the best song in all of hip-hop.

E1904: What Makes a Good President? in Sprout Spring 16 (Feb. 13 - 27, 2016)
Everybody knows how great George and Abe were, but what about presidents like Lyndon B. Johnson and James Polk? This class will examine three presidents with mixed legacies (LBJ, James Polk, and Theodore Roosevelt), and help students understand the long-term consequences of each president's actions. Evidence will be presented for each president, and at the end students will collectively vote on each president's "grade."
