Spotlight: Middle School Humanities

As part of their efforts to build research and critical-thinking skills in students, the Middle School introduced a new course in the sixth-grade curriculum this year, combining language arts, history and geography into a single course, Humanities, that offers an interdisciplinary approach to exploring central topics and themes.  

In this video, teacher Amy Tomblinson and several students from her Humanities class discuss the skills students learn in the course, the different kinds of projects students work on, and how Humanities can help students make connections in other classes.
