As the quarter wraps to a close, it’s time for the monthly newsletter! It’s been a busy month for the freshmen in Humanities class. Following our unit about the Holocaust, we started a new one with the essential question, “How do ideas shape the world?” During this unit we learned about the Enlightenment, Romanticism, and Crime Scene Investigation.
Other things done in Humanities this month include learning about literary themes and New Hampshire elections. In class, we took notes on what theme and theme statements are. We then identified the themes in Dr. Seuss books and Tuesdays with Morrie. Later, we discussed these conclusions as a class. We also did a small project on New Hampshire elections. Each pair of students chose a candidate and created a PowerPoint presentation, bumper sticker, and poster about their candidate.
October was a busy month, and we learned a lot. Things should only begin to pick up more as we enter the second quarter!
