K-12 Humanities Director
Humanities is the study of literature and social studies. These two disciplines have always been intertwined and that is even more the case since the implementation of the Common Core Learning Standards. The standards have placed a greater importance on informational text (e.g. primary source documents and essays) in literacy instruction while emphasizing the need to have students apply literacy strategies to content based reading and writing in the content area of social studies.
I hope the following resources will be useful in helping you learn more about each discipline and support your child’s learning.
