TPS Integrated Humanities Courses – Lit and History, Together Again!
One course, multiple credits
“The fact that the information you learn throughout the year is used simultaneously is ridiculously helpful! Rather than balancing two separate schedules or working through separate texts, this course gives you a single schedule for both history and English as well as streamlining the workload by utilizing your in-class texts for both classes.” Trent E (student)
History and Literature share a long relationship as the core "Humanities" and it is perhaps impossible to study one well without the other. This is why TPS offers a series of combined History and Literature courses from elementary through upper high school. The high school courses have the writing instruction integrated as well, so each HS course is a History plus an English Language Arts course, worth two high school honors credits. We also offer a two-year high school integrated history, literature, and cultural worldviews curriculum that earns 24 college credits.
