L10315: Ecopsychology in Spark 2016 (Mar. 12 - 13, 2016)
Are humans the greatest threat to themselves and the natural world? Why are we pushing away life that is so innately combed into every fiber of our beings. In this class, we will explore our interrelatedness with others and the natural world, and how we as humans can place more emphasis on tomorrow's greater needs than today's tiny pleasures. "Every part of this earth is sacred to my people. The earth does not belong to man, man belongs to the earth." - Chief Seattle Suquamish tribe.

H10316: Slam Poetry in Spark 2016 (Mar. 12 - 13, 2016)
What is it inside of us that enables us to speak so freely, fluently, and easily? When you step on a stage to preform a poem, you not only give away a piece of yourself, but your audience accepts that piece and together you co-create something wonderful. This class is to teach students how to form a slam poem, what goes into a slam poem, how to perform with your body, and how to preform with your voice. We will be creating our own slam poems in class and you will have the opportunity to share.

S9721: Anthropomorphism in Splash 2015 (Nov. 21 - 22, 2015)
In this course, we will discuss anthropomorphism, why we do it, and why we shouldn't. We will also discuss whether or not we as humans either over-utilize this term or underestimate it. Where are the boundaries between the concepts of humans and animals? We will explore all potential ideas, and have a lot of class discussion about these ideas.
