Global Studies / ELA

Those who do not learn from the past are doomed to repeat it. In this integrated course, we study the history of the world and use these lessons to shape the world we live in now. Literature and writing are used as a snapshot for the time they were written in, and students learn how the events of the past created the culture and societies that exist today. Through service learning and exploring ideas outside of one’s comfort zone and familiarity, students gain rich knowledge in history and language arts, and use this knowledge to better their lives and the ones of those around them.
