Dear Parents and Students,Emblem
Welcome to seventh grade Humanities and AP, Pre-AP!
In seventh grade Humanities, students use the language, skills, and procedures of authors and illustrators to produce an original picture book at the end of the first semester. During the second semester, students use the language, skills, and procedures of an historian to research and create a product to showcase a local history topic – a person, place, or event. Students then compete on a Saturday at a history fair.
Note: Humanities students are required to participate in and complete these advanced level projects. (EPISD Advanced Academic Services Handbook 11-1-2014)
We also have Schoology for students to refer to!
Please feel free to use the "Contact Ms. Figueroa" page for any questions or concerns you may have. I will reply as quickly as possible.
Sincerely,
Ms. Figueroa
