Can one person be considered a family? And how to interpret the concepts of “dignity” and “conscience”?
High school students discuss these questions in a civics class. But they are also relevant to adults. Perhaps that is why our new subject, “Civic Education”, in the “Learn with Your Ears” project immediately reached the top among 140 audio lessons on the site.
Until September, the “Learn with Your Ears” project included three school subjects: Ukrainian language and literature and the history of Ukraine for grades 7-11. All of them are available on five podcasting platforms: Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts, NV Podcast, and Megogo.
At the beginning of the new school year, a lesson on World History for grade 11 and three audio lessons on Civic Education were released. The latter raises important issues of human identity and personality.
You can listen to all the audio lessons here.
