A580: Material, Sound, Action: Listening like a Composer
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Alissa Voth

Can you describe the difference between a clapping sound and a tapping sound? How about a wooden drum and a metal drum? Why do we have so many words for the color blue but so few for the infinite "shades" of sound?

In this course, we will explore how composers distinguish sounds - especially sounds that are difficult to describe with words. We will address key concepts such as music notation, orchestration, and timbre. By the end of the class, each student will each write and (optionally) perform an original composition using household objects and concert percussion instruments.

This is an exploratory class for students of all musical backgrounds and abilities. If you've taken 12 years of piano lessons or enjoy finding sounds on TikTok, this class is for you!

In this class, we will delve into a couple of poems discuss where they lead us and then we will produce a few works ourselves! This class is for those who are tired of the standard 5-paragraph AP-style essay, those eager to break some grammar rules, or those who are hoping to explore a complex feeling or situation. Poetry lovers and poetry skeptics are all welcome--no experience necessary!

A593: The Basics of Music Tech
Difficulty: **

Have you ever thought about making your own music? Becoming a SoundCloud rapper, perhaps? Music production and technology is simultaneously very complex, but way simpler than anybody could imagine. In this course, I will introduce you to the very basics of music technology: what is and how do you navigate a DAW? What are MIDI effects and how can I use them? How do I write my own music? After a quick introduction to the software, Ableton Live, I will walk you through the very basics of one of my own songs, before creating a new beat live and on the spot. Music technology is an enormous world, but I hope this course will open the door and inspire you to begin exploring it!

H590: Are We Human or Are We Dancer? An Introduction to The Philosophy of Human Nature
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Anthony Kang

From imperialism and colonialism that has occurred throughout human history; world wars; racial, gender, romantic, and socioeconomic systematic inequality and discrimination; and the harsh impacts of COVID-19, we have witnessed tragedies thorughout history which may have caused us to question what it means to be human. With so many tragedies occurring in the world, the question of whether we are inherently good, inherently acting in our self-interests, or whether we are born with a blank slate is a question that seems to become increasingly uncertain.

In this class, we will spend the first half exploring the views of a few philosophers and psychologists from different time periods, such as the American humanistic psychologist Carl Rogers, English political philosopher Thomas Hobbes, French existentialist Simone de Beauvoir, and potentially many more. Then, we will have a discussion on our personal views on the philosophy of human nature. Do we agree with any of the views of people we learn about together? Is there anything they are saying that is problematic? Do we have views of our own, and if so, what are they? Most importantly, we will answer a timeless question posed by the lead singer of the American band The Killers: “Are we human, or are we dancer?”

H597: Grammar Rules Are Fake: An Introduction to Intro Syntax
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Adam Leif

Why do we write “John went to the store with Mary” but not “Mary John to went with the store”? Language has structure, and it’s not the grammar rules that you’ve been taught in school. In fact, the concept of “grammar” as a whole is something completely different to a linguist.

In this class, we’ll focus on basic syntax (the structure of language) through discussion and drawing syntactic trees for sentences in English, Spanish, and more.

No linguistic experience required! Just an interest in language.

H598: The Rationality Behind Criminality: Influences, Motivations, and Incentives of Criminal Behavior
Difficulty: *
Teachers: Shreya Chimpiri

What is keeping me from just taking my neighbor’s amazon packages? Who is really going to punish me if I take more than one piece of halloween candy? How can I not get caught when I sneak out at night against my parents wishes? If you’ve though any of these thoughts, either out loud or in your head, you’re in the right place. In this class, we’ll be investigating how various societal actors employ either informal or formal social controls to prevent us from engaging in societally undesirable acts. You’ll be exposed to various philosophical perspectives on criminal behavior and then engage in a lively simulation with your fellow classmates to practice what you learnt. No prior knowledge or criminal record is required to attend. Just come curious ~

H606: How to WIN a guy (or anyone really) in 10 days
Difficulty: *
Teachers: Jankhna Sura

Have you ever wondered why some people always seem to be in a relationship? Or why you feel physical pain after a heartbreak? In this class, we’ll watch clips from some famous (and perhaps cringey) rom-coms and talk about the psychology behind attraction and commitment in romantic relationships. We’ll also discuss what matters most during first impressions, the effects of love on your body and behavior, and what you can do to increase others’ liking towards you–all of which are supported by science :)

Difficulty: **
Teachers: Carolyn Keller

Have you ever felt misheard? Like the other person hasn't understood anything you said, even though you tried to speak clearly?

In this class, we're going to learn and practice a technique that you can use to communicate more effectively and still respectfully. Students will leave class with a completed worksheet, which guides them through an example of how they can express how they feel in a clear, assertive, and respectful way.

M591: Rabbits and Foxes, Butterflies and Tornadoes, and Chaos
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Daniel Lynch

What do rabbits, foxes, butterflies, and tornadoes all have in common? Their behavior, in one way or another, can be described with math and can be simulated and (sometimes) predicted with computer programs.

We'll start simple, with the definition of the derivative, and then we'll turn this definition on its head to see how to simulate several increasingly complex systems, including a predator-prey model of population dynamics (rabbits and foxes) and even a simple model of weather that gave rise to the so-called "butterfly effect" - a concept in chaos theory that claims a butterfly flapping its wings in Brazil can cause a tornado in Texas.

As we explore this mathematical zoo together, we'll let the computer do the heavy lifting and instead use our brains to develop some intuition for what's going on. We'll use one of the most in-demand programming languages today--Python--along with the same simulation techniques as those used to plan the Apollo missions to the Moon.

I hope you'll leave this course feeling excited about how you can use math and programming to understand and (sometimes!) predict complex and ever-changing real-world processes.

Interest in physics, math, and programming. Basic familiarity with what a derivative represents (slope of a line, or rate of change).

M595: Modern Marriage Markets
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Anika Nerella

Ever wanted to learn about what makes a marriage work? Why do some people get married and others don't?

S585: Spell book of Everyday Magic: Chemistry for Daily Life
Difficulty: **
Teachers: Rohan Wedam

Why should you never trust an atom? Because they make up everything! Everything you do and see in your homes, kitchens and daily lives is because of chemistry. We’ll get to the real questions in this class. How can I light my hands on fire? Why is cold soda significantly better? Why did your mom always tell you to wash your hands with water AND soap? How does a small metal cylinder power your remote? In this class, learn about how to make connections between often detached textbook principles from chemistry like acids and bases and polarity to occurrences we all care about on a day to day basis. Come join us to learn about life and see some sick demos.

Basic Chemistry is preferred (could be corequisite)

X575: A window into the mind: Meditation and your Brain
Difficulty: *

In this course, we will discussing a bit about the background, theory, and practice of meditation. Often associated with Buddhism, forms of meditation can be found among many other religious and non-religious groups. Nonetheless, Buddhist meditation serves as a good springboard to understanding the general goals of many forms of meditation, with the main aims often being the calming of the mind through concentration-type meditation, and the longer term path of understanding and gaining insight into one's own mind and emotions. Meditation is not easy, and many find boring, but for some this practice can be incredibly fruitful and interesting given patient efforts over time. There will be a little bit of actual dabbling with a few basic meditation techniques, but it'll be more important to understand WHY meditation is done and why it might make sense to pursue it further. I spent time in Asia in meditation centers and will also talk about some of my experiences there, but do not consider myself Buddhist or identify myself with any religious groups, so will be keeping things agnostic.

X594: Different Dollars: Cooler Ways Our Money System Could Work?! (Super Interactive) (Not Bitcoin)
Difficulty: *
Teachers: Michael Miller

Money seems like a natural idea—but have you ever wondered why we do it the way we do? Where do dollar bills come from? How could money be different? How could it be *really* different? And could changing the way we do money strengthen our communities?

In this interactive class we’ll experience what it’s like to use a few radically different types of currencies (other than Bitcoin), like Community Currencies,Time Banks, and Local Exchange Trading Systems. Then we’ll talk about the simulated experiences and analyze the effects that money has on our minds and our community. If we’re successful you will leave curious about how a lot of normal things could be done differently! At least one sandwich will be involved.

If you want to bring equipment for said passion, email me to get your thing approved (allisonhauser2023@u.northwestern.edu).

Random things can also work. For example... bring masks and we can weave them to make a statement? Write poems on them? Must be safe for school campus. Again, email me to get it approved.

Let’s rant, hang, and create the world we want to live in— starting right here in this room.

This is our time to talk and do things we don’t normally get to in school and at home.

Air it out. Work it out. Chill out. Move into the future.

We can go deep, downtempo, or keep it fresh. Remember, this is your time. Feel into what you want this space to feel like and how you can contribute to that feel.
