Over the past few years, universities and tech companies across the country have come to realize that Humanities subjects underlie and bind together studies in every realm of life, business, and academia. The ability to read deeply, to think logically and creatively, to write and speak clearly and persuasively, and to use language fluidly; a thorough understanding of other cultures, of ethics, epistemology, and the history of our species; the empathy and insight into others that comes from wide reading — all these and more are gained in the Humanities and are fundamental to success in all fields of endeavor. The Humanities are indispensable for working well and for living well.
We hope you’ll join us for the Nueva School’s first Humanities Circle on Friday, March 22, as we spark interests and deepen passions for the Humanities in PreK to 8th grade students. Throughout the evening (5-7:30pm), students can participate in multiple 45-minute sessions led by Nueva humanities teachers as well as special guest Dr. Pete Bowers, developer of Structured Word Inquiry. (Haven’t heard about SWI? Come see it in action!)
