    8th Humanities GT

     

    Welcome to Humanities GT/pre-AP/IB.  Humanities is a double blocked class that focuses on English, American History, literature, art, poetry, and philosophy.  It’s designed to meet the social, emotional, and academic needs of the gifted learner.

     

    The lessons for Humanities are taught in a wide variety of ways.  Through literary analysis, composition, and multimedia communication skills, students will explore and reflect on the political, social, and economic issues that have shaped our society and defined our roles as citizens. Students will be given an opportunity to choose and design some of their own learning experiences.  Through self-selection and exploration, students will be engaged with the curriculum which will lead to memorable, authentic learning.
