FYI: INTEGRATED HUMANITIES GRADEBOOKS
Skyline’s Humanities Department is committed to team teaching and interdisciplinary work and study. It is our goal to integrate the two subjects—Social Studies and Language Arts—to create a deeper, more critical and balanced learning experience for your student in the social sciences. We understand that learning does not exist in the vacuum of specific subjects and believe that the best learning environment is one in which students and teachers bring diverse ideas, disciplines, and perspectives to enrich students’ understanding and the classroom experience as a whole. As such, the Skyline Humanities Department tries to integrate its curriculum as much as possible in both the block and split-block model of instruction. The result is that to get an accurate understanding of your student’s work and progress in both our classes, some assignments demonstrate learning in both subjects and consequently belong in both grade books on Family Access. The number of points entered in the two grade books might be different, depending on the discipline in which the assignment was the focus, as this would best reflect the student’s progress in each discipline. Teachers generally try to inform students when this will occur, and if there are any questions about a particular assignment students are encouraged to inquire. With this method, we believe both teachers and parents will be best able to track students’ progress and best understand their strengths and areas for growth.
