Home / Cultural Crossroads

 

Painting, sculpture, music, fashion, literature, film, architecture, theater and more! Yes, this is an English class, but it is more accurately a course invested in the study of cultural impact. Students will learn about what people around the world were making, doing, thinking, and viewing as a reaction to the time in which they lived. For example, what effect did the Industrial Revolution have on song lyrics or women’s clothing? While students will choose their own points of interest for investigative work, readings and videos about cultural history will be assigned. Students will determine the method of communication of newly acquired knowledge for each unit of study. Class projects and field trips will be major aspects of the curriculum.
