My, My, My Generation (91805)
At this juncture, for the first time in history, there are five generations in the workforce today. Not only is there conflict in the business world, there is also conflict in the social/family setting. Many employees are actively disengaged, and there is conflict between family members. This lecture will be a light-hearted look at how we can all get along. By understanding each other's signposts, conflict in both family settings and workplace settings can be lessened.

Silent Stories: Investigating Gettysburg's Civil War Monuments- (91806)

Birding Basics– (91811)
This program will introduce beginners to the joys of birding in their backyards (and beyond), where they can learn and apply fundamental concepts of bird identification. As a beginner, my mentor initially identified every bird for me. This was good, for apparent reasons, and bad because I didn’t learn the broader context needed to winnow from hundreds of possible birds one identification. This context includes concepts from taxonomy and bird shape to migration.

Dealing with Difficult People: Lessons from Eisenhower & D-Day- (91813)
Dwight D. Eisenhower faced a daunting assignment when given command over the Allied forces for the D-Day landings in World War II. His team would be made up of experienced commanders (all with more combat experience than Ike) from multiple military services and from several nations. How could he ever reach consensus on issues, much less forge a working team? Through lecture and video clips, we will examine how Ike built a strong "team of rivals" for this critical mission. Instructor: Antigoni Ladd, Curriculum Director, Tigrett Leadership Academy
Room 148

Chuck Caldwell’s Amazing Life – (91814)
95 year-old Chuck Caldwell has led an amazing life. He traveled to Gettysburg as a 14 year-old to attend the 75th battle reunion and meet Civil War Veterans. He fought at Tarawa and Guadalcanal during WWII and was wounded twice. His handmade miniatures are now collector’s items. It’s a story of a Gettysburg treasure. Instructor: James Rada, Jr.

Literacy, Democracy, and the Bible – (91815)
Biblical influence on literacy is one of the roots of Western culture and of the development of democracy. Starting with the radical nature of writing and reading, this study looks at oral traditions written down during exile, showing that God is not confined to one temple but travels with the Jewish “people of the Book.” We will look at Bible translations leading to Pilgrims being “people of the Book,” and Jefferson’s words about reading and democracy.
