Foundations in Writing Through the Rise of Western Civilization | Instructor: Mrs. Carla Perez | $400 annual tuition fee

 

CLASS OPTIONS: 

  • 10:30am-11:30am

The content and assignments in each class period (see times above) are geared toward the chosen grade level.  However, high school students of any grade may enroll in either class, modifications can be made at parent/student request.​

When the Roman Empire fell in the late 400’s, Europe was plunged in what history calls the “Dark Ages.” The period could instead be called the “Dawn of Western Civilization.” This year our writing, reading, and studies will center around the Rise of Western Civilization, and the Judeo- Christian ethic that helped to form it. We will use the following to help us focus. 

  • IEW Writing Methods: The meanings of words change over time, but understanding the terms in their context is essential 

  • Terminology/Vocabulary: The meanings of words change over time so understanding the terms in their context is essential.  

  • Timelines: History is better visualized when placed on a timeline, especially when that timeline contains both secular and Biblical people and events.

  • Maps: Many elements of history are directly impacted by the geography and climate of a region.

  • Texts/Literature/Movies: Books, movies and the internet provide excellent sources. For Biblical integration, the primary source is the Bible.

  • Discussion questions: As your knowledge increases, you will grapple with increasingly difficult questions. Many questions will arise. Never be afraid to ask questions!  

  • Activities/projects: We will include activities to help you better understand Biblical events and principles. 

  • Biblical Integration: The Bible covers the entire span of human history, from God’s creation through the end times and into eternity. It is essential that Christians understand our Biblical place in history.

Students in ASB plan, organize, and participate in such activities as dances, Spirit Days, community projects, cultural events, and Staff Recognition throughout the year. Most of the funds for ASB come from the student-run vending program where snacks and drinks are made available to students. 

Students must maintain high academic and citizenship grades to remain in the class. Students are elected or appointed. If you are interested in being a leader at BHA, ASB is the class for you!

The role of ASB is to give back and serve the students at BHA. The students in ASB work to raise school spirit at on and off-campus events. They also work to raise student involvement in community service projects. 

 

All students who meet the eligibility requirements are allowed to apply for ASB and the selection process includes an application and approval from Mrs. Karen Sidur. Being an ASB member is easy! All you have to do is fill out an application and get an interview. Everyone has a role in ASB and you should become a part of it! 

&

Yearbook is a great way to get involved with every aspect of your school. Yearbook touches on EVERYTHING that goes on in your school and community. From attending all kinds of different events to mingling with your student body, yearbook gives you a great excuse to stay connected with your school at all levels.

With yearbook, the staffers work together as a team to put out a book that the entire school wants a part of. It has to be a team effort or everything comes off the rails.

 

As a member of the ASB and yearbook staff, when you get sent to cover a school event you get in at a discounted fee. Yes, you’re there to cover the event and you can’t just goof around, but by covering it, you’re probably more involved in the action than most spectators, which makes it even more fun.

Last but not least, ASB and yearbook are just plain fun! You’ll learn a ton, but you’ll do it in a fun and interesting way. Plus, the end result is a group of great friends and a keepsake that captures all of your work – and memories – into a book you’ll keep forever. How many other classes or clubs can promise you something like that?

CLASS DETAILS

  • Students must 13 years old by June 1, 2021 (exceptions can be made on a case by case basis, upon Mrs. Sidur's approval)

  • *Off-campus meetings will be required and scheduled after the start of the school year. In addition, ASB members/officers will be required to attend all BHA events, exceptions can be made on a case by case basis.

The second semester will be focused on small group communication, interpersonal communication, critical thinking, and debate. These aspects will be given to the students in a practical way for daily life application. It will affect the way they evangelize to people, the way they talk to people, and it will also enhance and improve their understanding of God and His role in communication with the created order of mankind.
 

Because of the nature of communication, class participation is highly valued and the majority of grading will be done in class. There will be homework assignments such as: analyzing speeches, gathering information, selecting topics, and interpersonal work. The grading will be based on accumulating the points that are received from each assignment and earned throughout each semester.
