Welcome to 6th Grade Humanities!
You may be wondering... What is Humanities?? Humanities is the blending together of English/Language Arts and Social Studies content. This gives the students the opportunity to connect their learning in order to be successful across content areas. We believe that pairing ELA with World Cultures in 6th grade will encourage our students to think critically and blend their learning in a unique and interesting way that will equip them for real world skills they will use in the future. The students will study Humanities together as one subject all three years at STEAM, each year connecting their knowledge deeper.
This year, we will gradually work our way into fully integrating World Cultures and ELA into Humanities, learning with Project Based Learning, Blended Learning, and integrating technology into our assignments. Students will have opportunities to learn outside of the classroom environment in the collaboration areas as they explore and research cultures in each unit. Students will read from all genres of text with the lenses of the cultures we study and even get to meet people from different continents and cultures through video chat and messages, too!
