The Philosophy II class at TCCS is working on Expeditionary group projects this semester. During the first few weeks of class the students did a population analysis of the Tidioute area. Once they had determined the different target populations they were broken into groups and were instructed to develop or arrange a social program for their target population. One of the groups, which included Amanda Burris, Shaun Sitterley, Matt Brown and Sam Johnson arranged for a martial artist to teach easy self defense techniques to the Juniors and Seniors at TCCS. Many of these students will be attending college or leaving home in the near future and the group through that this would be beneficial information for these students. Nathan Sherman, a black belt and owner of Integrity Martial Arts in Warren, gave a martial arts presentation and worked with the students to teach them self-defense moves that they could use if they ever felt in danger.
Some of the other projects the students are organizing are a fitness class for the elderly, and a presentation on how to stop Type II diabetes.
