For the 2019-2020 academic year, our humanities history and literature classes for all ages will focus on modern times, from the Civil War 

 

These courses, comprised of both history and literature studies, are the core classes at Heritage. Why? In humanities we encounter great books, we discuss deep ideas, and we are shaped by the stories and characters that we read about. A good story ignites the imagination, forms the soul, shapes a person’s perception of God, self, and life. It is through good literature that children (and adults) perceive what is true, pursue what is beautiful, and grow in wisdom and virtue. In short, our humanities classes are soul shaping because they provide a time for contemplation and conversation centered around the truths of Scripture.  

Heritage Humanities classes are on a 4 year rotation:  Antiquity, Christendom, Early Modern, and Modernity

 

Humanities II is a two period class comprised of history and literature studies.  Because history and literature will be integrated, students must take both.  Most students may consider this one history credit plus one-half literature credit.    

 

Students will read and discuss poetry, prose, and short stories that relate to the time period, as well as literary selections from the classic Great Books canon of western civilization. Class time will consist of Socratic discussions in which students interact with the author’s ideas and our culture within a Biblical context. Students will be assigned weekly reading and journaling assignments and will write, from the literature and discussion, two essays in the high school English class.  The weekly reading in this class will be heavy.  For Literature: Expect about 2.5-3 hours of work at home per week.
