Help your student become a better researcher and critical thinker through participation in our current events club! Throughout the week, students will be encouraged to keep a short journal on what they are learning from reading news articles and watching news reports. Parents are encouraged to actively discuss current events with your children at home, as this is an excellent way to instill values in our children. We will gather together on Fridays to discuss what is going on in our world. In this club, your child will be exposed to the opinions and beliefs of other people. This club will not only help students become better researchers and more articulate in expressing their own opinions, but it will also help students learn how to respectfully receive and process other peoples’ viewpoints.
Individual classes every Friday at 12:00pm. Come once, or come every week
Recommended for 6th-12th Grade

Rebecca FosterMrs. Rebecca loves the quote, “Teaching isn’t my job. It’s my passion.” She has had this passion from the beginning. Her teddy bears learned a lot, with her bedroom-sized chalkboard and old textbooks from her mom’s elementary classroom. It was no surprise to anyone when she sought and gained her Interdisciplinary Studies (K-8) degree from Middle Tennessee State University in 2001. That fall, she began her teaching career in a self-contained 6th grade classroom. Since then, she has taught all core subject areas in grades 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 in Rutherford County Schools. As a dedicated public school teacher, she spent countless hours planning lessons, creating materials, researching for best practices, collaborating with co-workers, and combing through student data. Her students consistently showed academic growth on state testing. She has spent the last 2 years teaching students from China online and in-person at a homeschool tutorial. She is excited to join the team of outstanding educators at Fusion Online Academy.
