Middle School Humanities Minimester

The  SSFS Middle School Humanities Department offers "minimester" courses during Quarter 3 for our 7th and 8th grade students. 

These courses, created with inquiry-based learning in mind,  have the following goals:

  • to pique student interest and engagement through choice and experiential learning,
  • to hone their skills of critical thinking while deepening and broadening understanding, and
  • to create new classroom communities of combined grades 7/8 learners. 

2020 Humanities Minimester Courses

The seven minimester humanities courses will run during the duration of Quarter 3, from January 28 to April 7, 2020.
