This class has something for everyone. We have a different presenter each week covering a variety of topics and activities of interest to Seniors. In the past we have covered: History, travel, health, technology, legal issues, IRS and even had a visit from a handler and his dog from the K9 Unit. We promote lively discussion and at times have been able to offer views and experiences to broaden the knowledge of our presenters.$50.00

Let’s Make Stuff Up
Join bestselling author Josh Langston, and try your hand at writing (or simply telling) stories of your very own. Josh will provide topics from which you can choose, or you can dream up your own. Writing tips and techniques will be shared at the start of each class, and participants will be asked to keep them in mind when working on their stories. Josh’s classes are always fun, and if you’ve never taken one, you’ll be in for a treat. His motto is: “If you’re not laughing, you’re not learning!”$50.00

Who are YOU?
“What do you know about yourself? Why do you have the interests, habits, skills, talents, and abilities you do? How can you best use those traits to improve your own life but to also affect your relationships with others? We will learn the strengths and weaknesses of our personality types and how to best “bring out the types needed” in various situations. We will look at research that has to do with learning style (brain research), “birth order” influence, generational “inheritances”, and strengthening relationships in general. During our seven weeks, we will work through:
–Two (or three) different “personality inventories” – and what they reveal about your own personality.
–How knowing the personality types can help you to “play well with others” and strengthen your relationships.
–Discover what you love about your own personality, what drives you crazy, and how to deal with that.
–What is your learning style? (Will do one short inventory.) How does this knowledge help you decide what ELM classes to take, for example.
–What is the current research related to the brain and learning/teaching?
–How does “birth order” play into family relationships?
–Did you “inherit” any abilities, talents, or traits of your parents?
–How do we become who we truly are—taking on “influences” of others as we age and, how to we affect others to become who they are?$50.00

The Ancient Centuries
The Ancient Centuries course covers the history of the world from the Stone Ages to the Golden Age of Greece (to 400 BC). Great civilizations arose in Egypt, Mesopotamia, India, China and even in far-off Central America. Rome struggled to survive while Carthage thrived. Humans went from working on sticks and stones to creating structures so magnificent that they are remembered as the wonders of the ancient world. Writing preserved thoughts so profound that they challenge our minds even today. Who was Socra-tes? Just 24 centuries separates us from the people of his time.$50.00
