Harwood Union High School will host another Socrates Café in the school library on Tuesday, Dec. 3, from 6 to 7:30 p.m.

Anyone interested is welcome to join the dialogue on this question: How might a lack of diversity in our community impact our perspective about ourselves and others?

This question was designed by students in “Untold Stories,” a unique humanities class at Harwood that is co-taught by students and teachers.

A Socrates Café is a dialogue in which participants are encouraged to listen to each other and to learn from one another, rather than being a debate or a discussion. This form of discourse and its focus on the search for knowledge comes from Socrates, the Greek philosopher who observed, “Wisdom begins in wonder.”

All members of the community are welcome to join in, regardless of age, experience or background. Harwood students who are experienced in leading Socratic dialogues will facilitate the discussions. Refreshments will be served.
