    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    It is a very well-rounding course that teaches students about culture and many aspects of life they would not be aware of otherwise. The course not only includes English, but also art history, art lessons, history in general, religions around the world, and many other components. It is a four year course and involves children from all four classes. No curriculum is repeated to a single student because the course has a four year cycle that it goes through. This allows a different time period and all of its aspects to be studied each year. It is very rounding and beneficial to any student.

    Course highlights:

    I have learned much more than how to use punctuation or how to decipher a theme. I have learned about cultures that are over a thousand years before my time. I have studied the art from these cultures to the point that I can accurately analyze any piece, explain its history, and meaning. I have been exposed to many different religions and I am much more knowledgeable because of this. I have learned many things that I would never have learned if not for this class. My home town is rather small. My school is as well. Without this phenomenal class, my knowledge would not be nearly as rounded as it is now after four years of the course.

    Hours per week:

    3-5 hours

    Advice for students:

    In order to succeed in Humanities, you need to put in the work and the focus. The class is easy if you do not slack off and you do not procrastinate. There are many deadlines in this course that are months away from when they are assigned. It is best to get the work done as soon as it is assigned. Most of the time, the projects are large and weigh heavily on your grade. The night before it is due is not the time to complete a project in this class. Also, study very hard for the tests. The tests and the assessments are by far the most difficult part of this class. They require dedication to the study material and a complete understanding of everything that has been taught. Note cards are the best study material for the art tests. As for the other tests, the most important thing is to know all of the material and be ready to think and analyze deeply.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    This course is extremely fun and not like a normal english class, we learn about art, both techniques and the history of it. Because of that it makes it an extraordinary course to take and I would recommend taking it over other english courses any day.

    Course highlights:

    We learned about how art was created and born and how the different countries, religions, and even thoughts created transcendental works, some majorly before their time, each with a story behind it and meaning that is different to each person. That is the best part, sharing your thoughts and seeing how each is valid.

    Hours per week:

    0-2 hours

    Advice for students:

    Make sure you do the work, it's easy so just do it so you don't suffer in the long run. Read the literary analysis books and don't stress if you don't get a perfect grade on them, I never did and I turned out mostly fine.
