    Creative writing as an expressive art form has always been a means of constructive, artistic relief. As middle school students begin to process the changes in their social life, home life, education environment, and personal progression, the ability to express these emotions becomes a vital part of their development. This course will provide a foundation in veins of artistic expressions. The students will explore the cultural significance of art forms such as spoken word poetry, creative writing, and songwriting. Throughout the course, students will keep a notebook or journal to reflect on events that happen between classes by responding to writing prompts and song challenges. The goal of this class is to develop confidence, guide emerging interest, and cultivate intentional and effective communications through literary works.

    The term “Facing History” is a verb as much as it is a phrase. In this elective, students will explore the themes, historical context, and ethical awareness that comes with putting this phrase into action. This course will lead students through guided discussions that will act as a catalyst in their interpretation of historical events through the sense of our current understanding. They will work to identify events, people, eras, and moments that have defined the experiences of themselves or their peers. They will then work to understand the surrounding issues, draw their own moral conclusions, and create plans for the community that reflect the change that we hope to be in our local communities.
