Master Class

The Master Class program is an opportunity for parents to participate in classes taught by members of our dynamic MA faculty. Each year, our aim is to bring you teachers from across the disciplines for an evening of learning and fun. After attending Master Class, past participants have been overheard saying that they would love to return to high school!

Our programs begin with an informal gathering at 6:45 p.m., followed by the class which runs from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. Look for announcements of these events in This Week at MA (TW@MA). In the meantime, please mark your calendar with the dates of the year's planned Master Class evenings. Further exciting details will follow!

  • Master Class: "Do the Right Thing" with KaTrina Wentzel

    April 18, 2019 at 7:00 p.m. in BBLC 211
    How do seemingly good people come to different decisions on ethical responses? What does it actually mean to be responsible for an action? What is justice? What does it mean to do good? These are the questions that seniors in the English elective, Freedom, Choice, and Obligation ask, and they're the same ones you explore with KaTrina Wentzel, Academic Dean and English teacher. 
    In this Master Class, you'll learn about three ethical frameworks, grapple with some standard ethical dilemmas, and apply those principles and thoughts to modern day examples. Like the teenagers who take the elective course, you won't leave the room with answers. But hopefully you will leave with new understandings and questions to ponder about ethics, justice, and the greater good. If time, KaTrina will spend the last 10 minutes of the class sharing some of the unique aspects of this full MA course including competency-based grading and the final performance assessment.

    Space is limited to 20 participants. RSVP HERE.
