The MOR Curriculum is available to the local chapters of MOR for
both weekly meetings and retreat events. The curriculum taps into
the great thinkers of the world to provide practical discussions and
presentations in areas that promote reasoned thinking. Both adult
and children curriculum sets are available, usually as a package.
MOR operates with a modern global awareness of science and
philosophy and encourages reason as the basis for discourse
and the analysis and valuation of ideas. For more information on

The MOR Curriculum takes difficult societal and personal issues
head-on in both the adult and children classes in a way that is
relevant to each. It addresses the major ethical questions of the
day, explores our cultural heritage, and focuses on the personal
responsibility to reason through our own decisions. MOR
curriculum offers a rational perspective on these topics in a
practical way that can be applied to daily activities, societal
responsibilities, and personal relationships.
The curriculum is designed to incite thinking using an open ended
approach. It's positive narrative presents an enthusiastic
approach to meeting life's challenges with the intellectual tools
that we have available, and with the relationships we form. The
directions presented in MOR curriculum are not absolute, but are
working principles that are subject to discussion, feedback, and
improvement from every MOR meeting and every MOR member.
There are two major types of MOR curriculum. The first presents a
topic for the weekly local chapter meetings, and is designed to
initiate discussion among members. The second is Special Event
curriculum, that is designed to be used at seminars, retreats, or
other MOR events. Each of these introduces a topic, provides
references, includes discussion starter questions, and provides
optional advice on managing the discussion.
|Online Curriculum and Meetings
Many MOR members are unable to attend local chapter or SIG
meetings, but they can participate online. Those in a local chapter
can also participate on line in addition to their local activities.
Group discussions on a variety of topics allow for personal
exploration and friendship building across the miles as people
gravitate towards their own personal interests.
