Resources for a Humanities Class at the High School

By Nina Kendall

Have you ever introduced a new course to your school community? I have.  In the past, I have introduced both African American Studies and AP Human Geography to my school.  This year we are introducing a Humanities class.  The blending of art, history, history, and literature in this class should be a strong addition to student choices.

Introducing a new course is both a challenge and an adventure. This course will draw upon multiple academic traditions. As the search for classroom resources begins, there are many questions to answer. What will be taught? What resources will be used? How will the information be presented?   

I have been on the hunt for resources to aid students in investigating the nexus of art, literature, and history. The Pinterest board below highlights some of the resources we have found.  I would love to hear what you would add.  Enjoy!
