8th Grade Humanities

Gwyneth Jones Nicholson & John Dostal

Humanities students in 8th grade study reading, writing, listening & speaking, and language as well as civics, US history, and current events. Project based and interdisciplinary learning allows us to approach our school work in innovative ways with a focus on collaboration, creativity, student voice and choice, and authenticity.

Students read novels set during the Holocaust and used art and poetry to capture themes in their book.
