Humanities is a course taught by Mrs. Small. In this class we investigate the essential question: what does it mean to be human?

In our first part of the year, we focused on the American education system. We read passages from various genres, authors, and time periods like "The Geeks Shall inherit the Earth", "Friends with Boys", and works by Horace Mann. In response to the readings we read, we were tasked with writing an essay in response to one of four questions. I decided to complete my response on the underlying conformity that the school system enforces.

While working on the American education system, we completed a group essay. This was a really fun and new experience as I hadn't worked with most of the people in my group. This essay was written during an XYZ day which meant that I was working with people from different sections.
