This interdisciplinary course will link four subjects (History, English, Art and Music) to explore the historical, literary and cultural influences that have shaped the United States. Students will have a dedicated period for both English and History, and will have an Art and Music teacher assigned to both sections for supplemental lessons. Students will be immersed in a variety of texts, including literature, non-fiction, electronic media, film, music, and fine arts in order to create their own original print and non-print works. Students will have opportunities for experiential learning through field trips, projects, and specialized art and music lessons that highlight the humanities curriculum. These courses are designed to synthesize concepts in Modern American History, the acquisition of literacy skills, and an appreciation and application of the Fine and Performing Arts as a way of developing a cohesive understanding of the human experience from the turn of the 20th century to the present. Art and Music teachers will supplement instruction and enrich content. Selection of 11th grade Humanities will require two dedicated class periods and will fulfill the Social Studies and English standards required for graduation by the state of New Jersey.
