Welcome to Humanities, my young friends!

Dear Humanities Students,
I welcome you to an exciting semester! I am thrilled that you have chosen to take this class. Humanities is a senior English credit, designed to give you a broad understanding of the many facets that affect human perspective. Our focus will pertain to art, literature, drama, music, philosophy, religion and architecture concerning the Classical to the Renaissance time periods.

HOMEWORK for Thursday, August. 25th
Please remember the following:

1. Your signed Disclosure Document.
2. Your notebook organized and set-up with the following tabs ("homework, handouts, notes, vocab./mechanics and journal)
3. Your assignment entitled "What are the Humanities? Why is studying the Humanities important?" 
As you consider these questions, remember the story shared with you in class today regarding the blind men and the elephant, specifically in relationship to the second questions.

I look forward to seeing you on Thursday..
