Because we have a two-grade band (sophomores and juniors) and have the good fortune to teach our students for two consecutive years, we focus on a distinct Human Ecology curriculum in each year of this two-year cycle.
One year focuses on our food and agricultural systems. How do our eating choices impact the world? How do are systems of production impact the food choices we have? The Ravens grapple with meaty questions throughout this year that challenge them to think about the personal, social, economic, and environmental impacts of food.
The other year focuses on our American System. We delve into the history, geography, and political philosophy of the United States of America. WE ask our students to think deliberately about what it means to be American and the rights and responsibilities of belonging to this nation.
