Day’s headlines readily – and relevantly – fuel classroom discussion


Learning politics in real timeTo assess Penn College students’ perspective on the day’s news – developments as fresh as the Washington, D.C., impeachment drama unfolding concurrently with their Thursday afternoon lecture – WNEP’s Chris Keating visited Craig A. Miller’s American Government-National course. Miller, an associate professor of history/political science whose Klump Academic Center classroom gives students a nonjudgmental space in which to formulate their opinions, began with a discussion of current events (including the congressional hearing on recess when the session convened, as well as its back story involving both President Donald Trump and former Vice President Joe Biden). In addition to interviewing Miller, Keating talked on camera with Allen J. Hafner, an individual studies student from Jersey Shore, and Dominic W. Howard, an undeclared major from Williamsport. The piece was broadcast on evening newscasts, beginning at 5:30 p.m.
