In the 8th Grade Humanities course at VIDA, we will combine the disciplines of English Language Arts (ELA) and United States History into one meaningful learning experience. Course content will be approached thematically, and students will work collaboratively to access and make meaning of both historical and literary concepts. Our students will employ the design thinking process (in parts and as a whole), and we will utilize project-based learning so that students will be able to comprehend themes which run through the humanities. A variety of resources, including technology, will be employed to bring our lessons alive.

We are tremendously excited and proud to be bringing to Vista a truly revolutionary educational experience!
