Conflict, Diplomacy and Resolution is an elective class for 10th — 12th graders at William Tennent High School. The class focuses on US foreign policy and international relations and has a strong emphasis on current events. Students in the class have a number of opportunities to discuss issues with the people who help shape the United States’ foreign policy. With the 2018 mid‐term elections fast approaching, students in Mr. Fries’ CDR class hosted Congressman Brian Fitzpatrick ® — 8th District — to speak with his students about foreign policy issues. The students developed their own questions to ask Congressman Fitzpatrick and held a question and answer session in the 21st Century Learning Lab. Topics included the trade war with China, the denuclearization of North Korea, the Syrian civil war, U.S. border security, and Russian involvement in the 2016 election. With his background as an FBI agent and his role as a policy maker as a member of the the House Foreign Affairs Committee, the congressman shared his viewpoints and insights on the major issues that help to shape U.S. foreign policy.
