Mrs. Leid - Humanities

Course Description:

Humanities Course definition:  Study in the humanities and fine arts develops an understanding of what it means to be human—the struggles and aspirations, achievements and failures, values and visions that help us make sense out of our lives and our world.  Situating the events, customs, and symbols of people throughout time in their appropriate cultural contexts, furthers the development of verbal, perceptual, and imaginative skills needed for organizing and understanding our world in communicable ways.

 Areas of study Humanities I course will explore through literature and film:

  • Philosophy
  • Mythology
  • Religion
  • Literature
  • History (prehistoric up to Dark Ages)
  • Appreciation the visual and performing arts (just enough to be familiar with the areas).
