Humanities - Upper School
Humanities classes strive to teach students how to ask questions, gather information, organize and evaluate that information and then share it with others in a way that leads to further inquiry. There are a multitude of skills taught in order for the students to engage in this self-perpetuating learning circle, but the essential ones are reading, writing, and conversation. All three skills are taught and refined to help the students improve their thinking.
To facilitate this process, Humanities classes implement metacognitive techniques, Visible Thinking routines, as well as student-teacher meetings to review progress towards acquiring these skills.
