9th Grade Humanities
Welcome to my Humanities DP sub page. Humanities is taught by the incredible Ms. Britt Shirk, but to us, she is just Ms. Britt (who models in her spare time). In this class, we have studied everything from the 50 states of the U.S. and their location on a map, to anthropological linguistics, and what and how influences the way we speak and live. This is a very inquiry-based class. Usually, whatever we study is followed up by a Socratic Seminar, in which we, as a group, discuss what we have just read or studied, trying to find the deeper meaning, trying to relate it to the world without our biased opinions, or just simply relating it to our lives, whether it be at home or at school. This class requires an open mind, a high maturity level, and a learned ability to be able to think deeper than usual, but at the end of the day, it all pays off.
