Have you heard the phrase, “It’s not what you know; it’s who you know?”  We disagree.  We think you have more control over what you’re going to do and where you’re going to go.  Understand who you are and how your communication influences your relationships.  Communicate better with your family and friends, coworkers, and potential employers.  Check out this LC and learn that, “It’s not who you know; it’s how you say it!”

Students will be challenged to analyze the American political system and whether it operates in the interest of the American voter. They will be empowered to overcome polarizing rhetoric and campaign tactics intended to manipulate the vote. Students will work for a local, state or national candidate or party organization that advances their interests, as well as work to empower their fellow students at Delta to participate in the November 2016 general election. They will learn research, writing, and speaking skills as tools to use in the political process to enact change.
