What are broad (or specific) topics that a current event/social issues/ high school course cover?

I've started a class at my high school and will assist in teaching it, and I believe that the best ideas come from cumulative thinking. So any ideas from the TED community are greatly appreciated.
Good background for this is that it's an elective course limited to juniors and seniors, and the teaching style is heavily subjective to Socratic seminar to create an appreciation for all ideas and enforce a deeper connection with a feeling of democratic equality.

    Jul 4 2013: @greg: the economic status of america and other countries is definitely something that will be covered during the course , and @ Robert, i like the idea of thinking smaller, more on a city level scale.

    all good thoughts.

    what is the opinion on a march madness style debate for a project during the year?
