Humanities

Humanities is a mixture of an English class and a History class. We spend a lot of time analyzing different styles of writing, understanding important yet overlooked moments in history, and creating our own pieces for each topic we learn.

Walden Skits

As a summer assignment, each student was required to read Walden by Henry David Thoreau. The book is a memoir about Thoreau’s time in the forest and away from civilization, including his discoveries, feelings, and delusions. In groups, we each then created a skit about the book with an overarching theme or message. During our Bourndale retreat, we then performed these skits for the school. The skit my group came up with was a Dr. Phil episode with Thoreau and different characters from his life as star guests.

Walden

Satire

For our satire unit, we created satires for any pressing issue or idea we wanted to get across. The satire my partner and I created was in the form of a presidential press conference where the current president of the US explained a new plan for solving the issue of inequality between minority groups and others in the country.
