Humanities has been referred to as the stories, the ideas, and the words
    that help us make sense of our lives and world. In this class, it means discovering our place in the world, our history, and our abiding connections with each other. We will focus heavily on the Western Hemisphere with geography, modern cultures, ancient civilizations, literature, and current events all come together in this class. The intention is to immerse each student in studies of the early Native Americans while developing a present-day awareness. Students are expected to read, participate in discussions and complete assignments to the best of their ability. Their input, experiences and prior knowledge will be welcomed in my room. 


    Our best line of communication is through email (catherinec@sthelens.k12.or.us). You may also reach me on the phone. I look forward to a great year working with your child.
