Humanities Celebration 2020

on June 15, 2020

Humanities Chairs Michelle Bulla and Darrell McElroy were unable to host an in-person celebration of the MWHS Humanities enrollees this year, but they wanted to congratulate and recognize 19 rising seniors who are 3-year graduates of the Humanities program, offered in grades 9-11. Enjoy this presentation filled with comments and video from teachers and students sharing their Humanities  experiences. For more information, visit the Humanities links below.

Humanities Program

The Monroe-Woodbury High School Social Studies and English Departments offer an opportunity for interdisciplinary study through the integration of Social Studies and English courses which facilitates in-depth learning and potentially improved academic performance. Students are grouped in one of two grade level cohorts, and experience these classes together in their schedule. The program provides an additional lab type experience on alternate days in the high school cycle. The “conference” period, a smaller class, allows teachers and students increased time to deepen their learning by providing time for writing workshops, writing conferences, research, and integrated projects that enhance the learning opportunities of the courses. For this extra time commitment, students will earn an additional .5 units of credit toward their diploma, in addition to the full credit earned for each subject. Enrollment is limited to 50 students per grade level.
