Humanities with Ms. Newell

Course Description

This year in Humanities we will be attempting to answer the question: How have cultures used literature to record their own realities and how have these pieces of work found continued relevance throughout history?

We will be covering a variety of stories and digging deeper into the history of the time period the story was written as well as the cultures of the society in which the story was written or told.

We will start with Ancient Greece and Homer’s The Odyssey and continue through other works, such as Ptolemy’s Geographia, Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales, and more!

This course will offer the option of some reading at home, but will typically not have required homework.
