As a reporter for the Denver Post, Mr. Finley covers environmental struggles that shape our lives in the West.  Just like real reporters, students follow Finley into the field to learn how to find a story.   They learn how to gather information through an objective process of  verifying, analyzing, and assimilating the facts.  During this block 3 GS 233 course students will sharpen critical thinking and writing skills while grappling with complex environmental challenges of living in the western United States.
